Free text Through a series of "stories" of mothers who chose to place their children for adoption, the author, an adoption counsellor, tries to show a variety of circumstances that could make a birthmother make that decision for her child. She also tries to sensitize adoptive parents to the fact that giving a child up for adoption is never done lightly and must be considered, particularly by the adopted children, as an act of love.
