Review

New Republic has a review and article about God and Jetfire: Confessions of a Birth Mother by Amy Seek, a memoir of an open adoption.

From the article:

Still, she finds it difficult to live in an arrangement that feels like an ongoing experiment. You don’t need to be a citizen of “Adoptionland”—as some in the adoption community have come to call their unmapped country—or even necessarily a parent, to appreciate what Seek has mourned, and sometimes celebrated, for so long. The heart of God and Jetfire isn’t, ultimately, about the litany of systemic problems in adoption, but rather the more universal experience of making a hard, unclear choice, and having to live with its outcome.

It's lovely to have you here. Please keep comments respectful of the adoptees who read here. "Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle."
