10 Things Adoptees Want You to Know

As an adoptee myself, I read many things that other adoptees write. One of the aspects, in any pieces written by adoptees, that stands out is the cry for change in how the adopted child and/or adult adoptee is treated. 

For the next ten weeks I will post one thing a week that many adoptees want you to know. 

1. Adoption is not a secret.

Don't hold the truth about our origins from us. Tell it to us as appropriate for our age, but please don't make it a secret. If you, the adoptive parent, won't be the one to tell someone else will. We'd rather it be you.

What are your thoughts on this? Please comment below.

Wrap-up of first FREE promo for Bonded at Birth

As of the end of the first free promo of my newly published adoption memoir Bonded at Birth: An Adoptee's Search for Her Roots I had 82 downloads. In addition I had 125 pages read in Kindle Unlimited downloads. Not too shabby, though I would have liked a bit more. Not complaining, though, as come Aug 23rd it will be on free promo once again and hopefully some word of mouth will have spread by then and more people will download it.

Now I'm off to start research prep for the big Virtual Book Tour launch come November which will run from November 1 through November 22, 2016. If you have a blog related to adoption (search & reunion or genealogy) and would like to host me and my book during this VBT please let me know. More info to come, stay tuned.

You will notice this blog has a new name and look. This is because the "new" one I was using at seems to have disappeared. From comments by other users the site has been down anywhere from five days to three weeks. Since I needed a blog to post on and was going to use that one, and still had this one on reserve, I had no choice but to give it a new look and change the title. The URL will be updated soon as well to reflect this change.

Till next time,
