Readers of adoptionfind often ask me to recommend adoption books. While weighted heavily with publications focused on adopters rather than adoptees, there are some excellent books included in this ChicagoNow.com list of Top Adoption Books.
In my opinion, Primal Wound by Nancy Newton Verrier is by far the best book for adoptees who seek to heal. Whether or not you know it yet, there is a lot of healing to be done.
I also just finished reading, Proof of Heaven by Eben Alexander, and while it is primarily a book about his near death experience, I highly recommend this book for adoptees.
Alexander is an adoptee who for most of his life he did not want to find his birth family. However, as a adult he went through a period of depression that left him feeling less like a successful neurosurgeon and more like an orphan. Upon analyzing his true feelings, Alexander found that he needed to know who his birth family was in order to feel complete.
Happy reading dear readers!
Blessings for a million inspired words,
