“Many books have been written about adoption”

“The worldwide popularity of tales of adoption is a universal theme because nearly everyone has been inspired by a shaggy-dog story or tragic folk tale that transcends all ages, cultures, and languages.” —Judith Land

Almost all children without parental care in the United States were in orphanages or foster arrangements until President Theodore Roosevelt declared the nuclear family was best able to serve as primary caretaker for the abandoned and orphaned. Inspired by his leadership, forces against institutionalization gathered momentum, and the practice of formal adoption gained popularity. Judith and Martin Land, Adoption Detective: Memoir of an Adopted Child, (2011) p. xi

According to Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute sixty percent of Americans are directly affected by an adoption story.
