1. This is Why I was Adopted:

An Interactive Memoir For Adoptees eBook

This interactive memoir walks you through my adoption journey and gives space for you to reflect on your own. You’ll receive prompts for self reflection, touchstones regarding adoption and clinical mental health education, along with vivid recollections of my personal journey through Korea and throughout my life.

How? It’s inspired by decades of conversations I’ve had with adoptees as well as Darla Henry’s 3-5-7 model for grieving loss and rebuilding relationships. It’s also supported by a multitude of scholar-driven and professional resources related to our adoption experience.

Who? This is for teen to adult adoptees. It also serves as a discussion guide for caregivers who seek to understand and serve those under their care.

Cost? $19.99

It’s ok if you don’t like talking about adoption. Maybe it feels difficult or strange or uncomfortable? You don’t have to talk about it. You can think about it. Write about it. Organize your feelings about it. So that whether you choose to keep it to yourself or tell it to the world, it no longer stands in the background of your life as a mysterious unknown, but a newly understood feature that inspires and propels you toward good things, toward hope, toward belonging, toward true joy.
