9781449092092: When Love Is Not Enough. . .: A Story Of Adoption, Based On Real Life Experience

This is a story based on real life experience. Two women of very different backgrounds finally meet through adoption. Isabel, married but infertile, adopts Francesca's baby, Laura. Her wish is to provide the child with a happy,loving home and future, and to be fulfilled in motherhood herself. As the years go by, life generally and the path of adoption are far from smooth. Isabel cannot comprehend her daughter's anger and 'distancing' before, during and well after adolescence. Something deep within Laura is disturbing her, and creating this hostility. Nancy Newton Verrier's research into 'the primal wound' and separation trauma sheds light on the reasons for these problems in adopted children, hitherto unexplained. And what of Francesca? This is a book with a mission, particularly for those considering adoption.

About the Author:

Hannah Hawthorne's real life experience as an adoptive mother is written in the form of a novel. The story is worthwhile for general readership, yet it is also a book with a mission. Although all cases of adoption are uniquely different, nonetheless adoptive parents, universally, may well identify with some of the problems narrated here, and the reasons for them, perhaps gaining comfort and insight from the read. It could also be a source of understanding to those preparing to be adoptive parents.
