Free text While the first book of Joe Soll (also registered in our database) focused on healing for the adoptee, this publication is focused on healing for mother who lost babies to adoption. From discovery of pregnancy, young, resourceless women are bombarded by messages that directly negate and contradict their inner feeling and experiences. The book explores the effect of this dilemma on mothers'attempts to keep their baby on the one hand and, not being able to do so, to find a way to survive one of the most devastating losses imaginable. The book has been written in an attempt to provide mothers with knowledge and tools that can be used in healing this fracture. Each chapter provides an exercice they can do (but wich is not intended to replace any therapy). Joe Soll, an adoptee himself, is psychoterapist and director of Adoption Crossroads, a non profit organization in New York that helps reunite and gives support to adoptees, original parents and those who have adopted. Karen Wilson Buterbaugh, who lost herself a baby to adoption, is co-founder of Mothers for Open Records Everywhere and co-founder of OriginsUSA. She is also a founding member of Mothers Exploited By Adoption.
