Secret Thoughts of an Adoptive Mother
While books about adoption proliferate, none of them addresses the subject of open and interracial adoption like Jana Wolff's personal and frank account does in [i]Secret Thoughts of an Adoptive Mother[/i]. Often irreverent, always insightful, surprisingly funny and stunningly honest, [i]Secret Thoughts[/i] tells it like it is: How it feels for a woman to look nothing like her child and to know the woman who does. This fiercely honest and funny book answers questions no one dares to ask: What if I don't like the child I get? Will she want the baby back? If this is the happiest day of my life, why am I so sad? Am I too white for a kid this black? Chapter titles include: "The Myth of Bliss," Friendly Racism," "Meeting Your Child's Mother," and "Adopted Poop Doesn't Smell Any Different."

We adopted about 2 months ago and I could relate to so much of this book. It was reassuring to know others feel the same. Read full review
Review: Secret Thoughts of an Adoptive MotherUser Review - Bonnie - Goodreads
Reading this book right after we adopted our son was perfect timing. It validated every thought I was feeling at the time. My son is nearly 14 now and I still think about those first feelings. Read full review
