Melanie Rae Recoy, a writer for the adoption website Grown in My Heart reviews Someone’s Daughter. She says: “I read Someone’s Daughter in one sitting, sometimes nodding my head in agreement, sometimes surprised that the author had given an old adoptee like me something to think about. All in all, I enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone looking for a glimpse into the journey and thinking of an adoptee.”
Judy Miller, adoptive parent facilitator of Parenting Your Adopted Child: Tweens, Teens & Beyond, recommends Someone’s Daughter as a resource for adoptive parents who take her classes. Commenting on the book, Judy says: “I found the honesty riveting. I feel your story strongly represents a perspective of the adoptee’s voice.”
Matters of the Heart, a blog for sharing open adoption stories and educating others on the gift open adoption brings to all those involved, has featured Someone’s Daughter.
