Books on Search and Reunion


I have found these adoption related books very useful for understanding the psychology of being adopted, and the steps required for a search.

These links point to the books at


The Primal Wound: Understanding the Adopted Child

Being Adopted: The Lifelong Search for Self

Lost and Found

The Psychology of Adoption

The Adoption Triangle

Birthright: The Guide to Search and Reunion for Adoptees

Happy Reading!

One thought on “Books on Search and Reunion

  1. I’m actually in the midst of another one that I really like if you don’t mind me recommending it as well. It’s called The Adoption Reunion Survival Guide and is edited by Bailey & Giddens (2001, New Harbinger Publications).

    Thanks for your list, and your blog!
