“A generous and prismatic anthology of short stories and poems. . . As promised, the phantoms of mystery mothers, fathers, children, grandparents, and grandchildren do shimmer between the lines of many short stories and poems, the ghosts of could-have-been, the spirits of what-if. . . A vital and unforgettable reading experience for everyone, whether he or she is part of the adoption plexus of not.”
-Donna Seaman, Hungry Mind Review
“A beautifully compiled and evocative collection of writings about the adoption experience which expertly weaves the voices of all members of the adoption community into a tapestry of shared expressions of pain, loss, and joy.”
-Lynn C. Franklin, author of May the Circle be Unbroken: An Intimate Journey into the Heart of Adoption
