About the Author:

Miriam Komar, D.S.W. has a private practice in psychotherapy and psychoanalysis in New York City. Formerly a lecturer at Adelphic University and infant therapist at Mt. Sinai Medical Center, she coordinated the Adoption Resources Program at The Postgraduate Center for Mental Health. She was also a faculty member of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx, New York.

From Library Journal:

This book offers much insight into the psyche of the adopted child. Psychoanalyst Komar notes that the greatest challenge of adoptive parents is to instill a positive self-image in their child. She forcefully argues that most people want to be ordinary and to blend into their environment. Thus, the usual attempt to attach special status to the adoptee is counter-productive. Her instructive comments on real-life situations, based on extensive interviewing of many adoptive families, provide guidelines and support. She is particularly reassuring when addressing the troubling questions regarding timing and techniques for imparting information about their past to adopted children and stresses the importance of recognizing a child's legitimate concerns about his or her origins. Komar's common-sense approach can help resolve many issues that confront the adoptive family.
