How It Feels to Be Adopted

Jill Krementz

In these splendidly simple accounts of what it means to kids to be adopted, nineteen girls and boys, from eight to sixteen years outdated—and from each social background—confide their emotions about this significant reality of their lives. It’s deeply affecting to pay attention to those kids as they reveal their questions, frustrations, difficulties, and joys with an honesty that’s instant, convincing, and stirring. Their generosity will present solace and power for 1000’s of different kids who share with them the expertise of being adopted—and who shall be helped to grasp that their very own feelings are regular and acceptable.
