Late Discoveries: An Adoptee's Quest for Truth Paperback – October 5, 2011
|New from||Used from|
"I highly recommend it (Late Discoveries) to anyone who has wondered about their life, their family and their passage of becoming whole." - Eva Shaw, Ph.D.
"Susan pulls no punches in telling her story. Yet, her compassion, her outlook, her descriptions all allow you to walk with her through her discoveries and feel what she feels and cheer her on from your living room. You will be changed, inspired, and you will not forget Susan's story."
"A refreshing approach to dealing with stark realities... As a late-discovery adoptee, and a person of faith, Susan sought the truth of her life, embraced her natural and God given gifts choosing to honor the best of what she's been given and move forward." ~Cindy "RangerLady" Gillman, Founder of Ranger Lady, Inc.
"This book leads to the heart of the issues with secrecy in families. Knowing who you are starts with birth. Susan's book is a must read."
From the Author
When a story is written, it cannot be forgotten. I don't want any of my Late Discoveries to ever be forgotten.
No one, not even a mother should control another persons knowledge of his or her history.

Susan Bennett is a strong woman, and now she is giving back to the adoption community -- a community she didn't even know she belonged to a short while ago. The book is very well written.
Discovering her birth family and dying to the hope of a perfect reunion are also sensitively written. Usually children are only given up in grave, dysfunctional situations. Susan learns her story, piece by piece, and has some very meaningful yet difficult reunions, mostly via phone, with the members of her family of origin, as she comes face-to-face with the details of challenging beginnings. Late Discoveries will find its rightful place in the long line of adoption memoirs, providing an insightful and honest look at Susan's late discovery and her first year of disclosure and reunion, a successful beginning to integrate her new identity by making peace with her adopted family, her new birth family, and her pre-adoption history.
