Free text The author, an adoptee herself, with experience in the Adoption Disclosure department of an Ontario Children's Aid Society, as well as adoption support groups, has produced this guide to try to help adoptees through the complex process of searching for birth relatives. In the book, she also addresses the questions birthparents, as well as adoptive parents may have. She supports more open adoption practices where future reunions are facilitated by attitudes prevailing at the time of the adoption
