From the Author
We must learn to do what is right, not what is acceptable, because life is very good when we make the right choices. Happiness does not depend on wealth or world traveling. It comes from following our own free will, finding the beauty of the environment, and building positive relationships with significant others.
Adoption is a familiar theme among all people that encourages group reminiscing about romantic fairy tales, fables, mysteries, historic legends, shaggy-dog stories, and tragic folk tales.

Erik and Judy...it was a pleasure and hopefully our paths will again meet.
extraordinary moment that took my breath away."- Judith Land
Judith Land's adoption reunion story is a roller-coaster of emotional beauty, turmoil and closure.
As an adoptee, who also searched for (and found) my birth family, I especially enjoyed the latter half of this book. Chapter 16 through to the Epilogue captured and held my attention. I love the way Judy starts each chapter with a diary-style note to her birth mother. These snippets of internal thought share many of the same feelings that I penned in my childhood diary.
The deep emotional scars that are revealed and explored in "Adoption Detective" accurately represent many adoptee's experiences. Rejection, secrecy, Christian values, and the falsification of crucial life documents, are themes explored in this poignant memoir.
Adoptees and birth mothers will find themselves on every page of this book, and may find refreshing new ideas on how to perceive and embrace their adoption roles.
There needs to be far less blame, and more embracing of truth among triad members. Judy displays her deep-seated understanding of all sides here.
Bravo Judy! Thank you for sharing.
