Introducing Lost Daughters Anthology
Today I am officially announcing the Lost Daughters Anthology: Writing Adoption From a Place of Empowerment & Peace edited by Amanda H.L. Transue-Woolston, Julie Stromberg, Karen Pickell and Jennifer Anastasi, published by CQT Media and Publishing, LGA.
This book is a compilation of the best of the best of the Lost Daughters blog -- 30 female adoptee writers who chose their best essays to be included in this book.
In my own essay, I describe what it feels like to experience genealogical bewilderment as it relates to ethnicity.
I have always looked Italian, Greek, Spanish, Mexican, South American and/or Persian or fill in here _____for the never-ending opinions about where I came from. Growing up with English-looking parents always made people wonder. But nobody wondered as much as me, growing up without any access to my background information.
The age-old question I was asked my whole life,
"How does it feel to be adopted?" is answered in my essay and the other amazing voices you can now purchase as an E-book. Paperback will be forthcoming in the near future.
All profits from this book will be donated to charity.
