Amanda H. L. Transue-Woolston’s book of essays is heartfelt and brilliantly written. It is an original piece of work that sheds light to many of the core issues with being an adoptee. In her unique way of holding her experience, Amanda illustrates the power of one’s story; as she moves from the personal, to the role of educator, to that of an adoption activist. The Declassified Adoptee is a must read for all!
