The Search: A Memoir of Adoption (Paperback)
"A compelling story of an adopted woman's search for her truth and a mother lost, found, and lost again. The Search is a poignant memoir of the reality of an adoptee's life. I couldn't put it down."
JOE SOLL, LCSW, PSYCHOTHERAPIST, AUTHOR OF ADOPTION HEALING...A PATH TO RECOVERY
As soon as she learns the story of her birth parents' untimely deaths and her subsequent adoption, Titia realizes that her adoption is to be kept a secret-never to be discussed again out of fear of upsetting her mother. Wanting to be loved and to fit in, she obeys her parents' wishes-until a mid-life crisis shatters her illusion of being the perfect daughter, wife, and mother. As Titia chronicles her poignant journey to find her birth mother, she details how she jeopardizes her relationship with her adoptive parents and threatens the privacy of unsuspecting strangers-all without any guarantee of a happy outcome.
When Titia embarks on her quest to find her birth family, she immerses herself deep into her past, not knowing that what she discovers in the end will transform her entire life.
