“Adoption Detective is a story that is hard to forget—readers will want to keep a hanky close at hand. The plot is emotionally draining, engrossing throughout, and agonizing at times with great expectations followed by periods of both ecstasy and gut wrenching rejection. Nothing is fait accompli when it comes to affairs of the heart and on this account the book delivers.” —Jim and Penny Hassell, avid readers
“The reader will hang on to every phase of the adoption search—this is a life story that deserves this book.” —Terrie Drake, librarian, Colorado Mountain College
This book is riveting—I literally could not put it down. Your story is solid and exceptional. I can’t say enough good things about this book.” —Sheila Mincer, speech-language pathologist, Mountain Board of Cooperative Educational Services.
“The writing style of the authors is precisely written in an authentic voice that is uniquely fresh and bold. Judith’s opinions about the value of self-identity are educational and inspirational. It is impossible to put this book down before it is finished—other adoptees will be greatly inspired to find their own roots.” —Jean Patton, mother of the adoption reform movement, founder of Orphan Voyage, and the author of The Adopted Break Silence
