About this ebook

23: Voices of Adopted Youth is a powerful glimpse of adopted youth’s thoughts on how adoption has impacted their lives. Through their own voices, twenty-three youths share heartfelt and profound stories about relationships with parents and birth parents and how, ultimately, these affect their sense of identity, self-image, relationships with siblings and friends, and expectations of self and others. They acknowledge the uniqueness of adoption and emphasize the importance of knowing who they were born to and their right to explore that option. Despite experiences of confusion, anger, frustration, and sadness, these youth were all grateful to have been adopted into their families. Each youth voice authentically displays raw wisdom, insight, and passion and provides the reader with an enhanced understanding of the adoptee experience, parenting an adopted child, and parenting in general.
