    A collection of many short stories this book describes the experiences of adopted children birth parents and adoptive parentsI loved the section about adoptive parents though perhaps that's because I'm an adoptive parent myself The section of stories about birth parents was OK It certainly helped me better understand the perspectives of birth parents and their heartache but I've read other books that do a better job achieving that goal than this oneThe thing I really disliked about the book was the collection of stories by adopted children They seemed like a very angry disconnected bunch of selfish people I think the author picked the wrong group of people to represent adoptive children If the goal was to help readers learn about each perspective and connect with the unique issues of each group the author picked the wrong people for the adopted children section I didn't like them didn't like their stories and couldn't connect with their issuesPerhaps the fact that the author herself has no personal connection to adoption played a part in the stories she selected As a result I think she used a somewhat flawed process to select writers for the book or to select which stories to include I think she picked people who are good writers but not necessarily people who have a good story to tell that others can learn fromAlso many of the authors are British and perhaps that made them seem a bit cold to me Their communication style seemed difficult to connect with
