Beck Valley Books reviews “We’re Not All the Same, But We’re Family”

Sharon Martin, of Beck Valley Books writes:

We’re All Not the Same, But We’re Still Family: An Adoption and Birth Family Story is an excellent story which depicts the story of Deshaun and how he has a lot of questions about being adopted. Why was he given up for adoption? Who are his real parents? How will he cope when he meets or locate his real parents?

With the support of his adopted parents Deshaun goes on a discovery to find his real dad and once they find him it tells the story of how the relationship is rebuilt, the fears Deshaun has and the positive reassurance he receives from his adopted parents.

The drawings and easy to read narrative explains what every adopted person will feel at some point in their life in searching for their true identity. The story ends on a high note with Deshaun not only finding his dad but also finds he has an extended family who readily accept him. 

A well written book for a personal point of view which will help others understand adoption and the search to find out about their heritage

Product Details
Sharon suffered continual physical and sexual abuse from her stepfather for seven years. Unfortunately, no one would listen to her or believe her story. At age 16, she finally finds the courage to flee from her tormenters. Social Services find her the first of a string of temporary jobs between which she criss-crosses England trying to find a safe haven.

However, she cannot escape her "night devil" completely until she comes to terms with her past. Sharon's growth and recovery from abuse and learning to accept love would be a long road to travel, taking nearly forty years to achieve. She had to learn to trust and love herself before she could another.

Faced with society's judgments against her, Sharon stood
alone against the people who abused her for seven years. The truth is, we don't start to heal when taken from an abusive situation; we only start to digest and relive its emotional content. Many go on to live their lives with tortured souls and an inability to trust and love their own children.

Equally, many of us find the inner child that God intended; we pull that
child past the empty adult left by years of mutilation of our childhood
souls. I was a no-hoper, unjustly cast out into a world of desolation and
loneliness that pulled at my heart like a lead weight. I self-harmed and
mutilated parts of my mind and body to try and erase memories.

Eventually, I learned that healing was within me and could never be found
under that largest or smallest boulder. I have walked the road of hope and
desire and looked into the pool of my future. I did not want to be the mother
they had raised, or the wife they had created. Slowly, I started to rebuild
my life and my wish is that this book offers the same hope to you.

Therapists' Acclaim for Surviving a House Full of Whispers

"This is the story of one girl's fear and battle to survive
the emotional traumas and deprivation of her past.
I can thoroughly recommend this book which will help
anyone who is, or has, suffered abuse."

"A very honest account, and a very accurate view of
the feelings, thoughts and behaviors of people traumatized
in childhood and youth. If you suffered in childhood,
