Adoption Healing is a unique book. The listener is provided with a description of the immaculate deception imposed on pregnant women and the ensuing tragedy of the loss of their babies to adoption and the profound effects on their lives. This is followed by different methods of healing the mother's wounds, including inner-child work, visualizations, healing affirmations, and anger management. Every chapter includes a "Myths and Realities" of adoption section, a summary of the chapter, and exercises to do on one's own.
If you could sum up Adoption Healing in three words, what would they be?
Worth the effort.
What did you like best about this story?
What insight do you think you’ll apply from Adoption Healing?
I worked through the book. I took my time. I cried, I raged and I came through. Before this book I stepped around reality...tiptoed. I was never on solid ground in any relationship. This therapy is targeted to the wounds only first mothers carry. I am changed and every relationship I have is better because of this book. Sounds like too glowing a recommendation? It's not. It probably isn't glowing enough because what it did for me is inexpressible.
Any additional comments?
If you lost a child to adoption, as I did. Read this. You don't know what you don't know. This will help you love yourself (and trust enough to love others) in a way you never knew was possible. It's groundbreaking and it needs to be said.
