Shadow Train: A Journey Between Relinquishment and Reunion Paperback – September, 1995
"A deeply felt story that confirms just how enduring is the pain of coerced separation and also affirns a heartwarming vision of 'family'." -- Rickie Solinger PhD, author, WakeUp Little Susie: Single Pregnancy and Race in the Era Before Roe v. Wade
"A very personal heartwarming story which is beautifully told. It takes you on a journey that truly touches the heart as Taylor recounts loss and love. Shadow Train describes three families with the love of one child in common and how those families learn to build caring loving relationships. It is a story of our time. You will want to tell your friends to read it." -- Reuben Pannor, MSW, LCSW, Co-author, The Adoption Triangle
"An important contribution that speaks in a special voice. Its importance is primarily in its being written by a family therapist who understands systems theory. Taylor gives us her own story and shows how the events reverberated in the lives of all involved. That's what makes Shadow Train so interesting and different from other birthmother books." -- Annette Baran, MSW, LCSW, Co-author, The Adoption Triangle
From the Author
Writing this book about losing my first born daughter to adoption and spending nineteen years wondering and grieving was a very healing experience for me and my entire family. I remain committed to the reform of adoption laws to allow open adoption, open records and ongoing contact between adoptees and their birthfamily to prevent the dilemmas created by closed records and the closed adoption system.
