Home School Book Review on “We’re All Not the Same, But We’re Still Family”

Having adopted both of our sons, I found that this book covers the exact questions and issues that were discussed in our pre-adoption training. The story was written for adoptive families to explore the benefits of adoption openness. In her “For Parents and Caregivers Only” at the back of the book, co-author Theresa Harris, a therapist and adoptive mother, warns, “Openness may not always be positive for families.” But when it is a positive experience, it can help to address the important themes of identity, attachment, grief, and loss that adopted children (and their parents) often have to deal with.

About this Chapbook...


We have all lost a dear one at some point in our
lives. Grief, depending on the relationship with the
one deceased, affects us differently. I feel my Dada
and Mausi's absence every single day for disparate
reasons. But these two losses have taught me that
their time had come. And that life is about celebrating
those alive and not just mourning those who
have moved on. Optimism and faith are the keys to
overcoming the roadblocks life puts in our way.


This book tries to state that there is always hope for
anyone coping with grief. No one can tell us exactly
how; the voyage has to be undertaken by each of us
individually.
