“Why write a book about adoption?”

“There is a high demand for quality stories about adoption because nearly sixty percent of Americans know someone who has been adopted. Everyone loves a mystery novel and the universal popularity of orphans Heidi, Oliver Twist, Little Orphan Annie, and Anne of Green Gables are inspiring and thought provoking.” —Judith Land

The primal wound, genealogical bewilderment, oppositional defiant disorder, adoption syndrome and feelings of being unheralded are characteristics sometimes associated with children who are orphaned, fostered, and adopted.

I was passionate about my efforts to find my roots, and the positive results I obtained after conducting an adoption search. I wanted to demonstrate in the book Adoption Detective that negative beginnings can have positive outcomes. Other adoptees will benefit from my experience, and may be inspired to do the same. Birth mothers worldwide will be encouraged to make more informed compassionate choices about accidental pregnancies, and parents will gain insight into the minds of their children.
