Pieces of Heart: An Adoption Reunion

Front Cover
Strategic Book Publishing, 2011 - Biography & Autobiography - 86 pages
Imagine one day you had a knock on your door, and you opened it to find a stranger, but there was something so very familiar about that stranger, you could feel it tug at your heart. As you gazed into his eyes, he told you that you were his birth mother, and he'd been looking for you for so many years.... Would you welcome him into your arms, hold him tightly and weep with relief as you felt the beat of his heart rise and fall in rhythm with yours? Or would you slam that door shut? In 1970, nineteen-year-old Sharon Linden placed her newborn son into the arms of a Springfield, Illinois couple. For her, as for so many others, it was the ultimate sacrifice born out of a mother's love. But now a part of her was gone and the deep grieving began. From that day forward, a silent longing would remain to reconnect with her "long lost child." Thirty-eight years later, through the Internet, Sharon and her son Scott found one another. Here is their poignant story.... About the Author: Sharon Linden is a poet and short story writer who never dreamed that her first book would tell her own story. She wrote Pieces of Heart for all the women who have experienced the pain of giving up a child for adoption. She hopes that by sharing her experience, others too will be able to find a sense of closure. Her next book is a ghost story set in East Tennessee.
