Pre-Release Review by Lorraine Dusky, Author of "Birthmark" and First Mother Forum

“Amanda Woolston is a voice of understanding and reason in the complicated, difficult and often painful world of adoption reform and reunion–not only that, she is a forceful writer exploring topics with sanity and insight that adopted individuals–as well as first mothers–deal with on a near daily basis. Amanda is a breath of fresh air for all of us and as a voice on the topic we share, I cherish her dearly. Her essays in The Declassified Adoptee will be read and appreciated by many for years to come.”

–Lorraine Dusky, author of Birthmark and blogger at First Mother Forum.
