From the Author
No matter how many books I write, this one will stand alone as my most personally meaningful. I make no claims that this sojourn represents THE authoritative voice on such childhood experiences. But in that my truth has now been told, it has the opportunity to wed itself to other testimonies, so that we might together creative a collective authoritative voice of those who have walked this certain path. Through honesty do we honor, therefore my story is not nearly a lament but rather, by virtue of its honesty, a celebration of one child's life.

Insightful awareness of obvious and tacit differences that so profoundly effect understanding ourselves and one another in multicultural relationships, when love is not enough.
Very timely read for us as we are expecting to adopt cross cuturally and realize there is so much to learn about ourselves and each other.
We feel we have an advantage in that we get our "IDENTITY" as being children of our Father in Heaven as described in Scripture and in that may be more able to relate to one another.
It is a memoir written by a man who feels very deeply, it is a man showing & sharing emotional & psychic wounds, it is a journey toward wholeness & spiritual healing. If you have never struggled or searched the deep things of your own emotional & psychic trauma, you may not "get" it.
I got it. I loved it. Deep calls unto deep. I recommend this book to anyone with a mind & spirit open to receive it.
