Free text The search and reunion of adoptees with their birth parent(s) and what happens afterwards is the theme of this book. Through the stories of a number of adoptees and birth parents who found each other years after the adoption took place, the authors try to explain the reasons that lead some people to search, the feelings involved and adjustments that are necessary on the part of every member of the "adoption triangle" (or "circle", as is suggested would be a less conflictive way of looking at adoption relationships).
