NOTE: Michelle McColm is the pen name for Adoption Reunions, written by Zoë Kessler
From back cover:
Adoption Reunions is the most comprehensive book about reunions so far. Michelle McColm, in drawing on her own experience and those of other reuniting participants, has presented a sensitive and compassionate guide for those involved in all phases of the reunion process.
~ NANCY VERRIER, MFCC, adoptive mother, author of The Primal Wound: Understanding the Adoptive Child
Adoption Reunions is a remarkable book that provides a balanced, compassionate, objective and comprehensive assessment of adoption and reunion experiences involving challenges and rewards, fears and hopes, anguish and joy. McColm offers valuable suggestions that can provide a road map for those who have experienced or are contemplating adoption and reunion. ...a must-read for those working in the field of adoption.
