This book reveals secrets about Adoption that will be beneficial for all adoptees, their families, and loved ones. The author Richard intimately shares his profound journey of discovery after being told of his Adoption at the age of 56. Why do some adoptive parents hide the truth? I discovered a major 'secret' in overcoming negative emotional issues brought about by Adoption - "talking about it"! Why I carried a Guilty Secret?: 'I never told my adopted mom that I was searching for my birth mother.' Why did my birth parents give me away? What if I had found out I was adopted when I was young? Mysteries from my past were solved My Life's Sliding Door Moments "I didn't receive any understanding or comfort from any family or family friends? No nurturing, no insight or understanding of my lifechanging discovery, none whatsoever." "And this has motivated me to plan this book to help, even comfort others who may not have anyone to talk to or who understands them, and my goal is to connect with you. Also, to encourage and inform family and loved ones of adoptees that being open and talking about it in a loving and understanding attitude is a must." "A child can't build a future if they cannot make sense of the past."
