”AdoptionLand is a vital contribution to a new genre of books, films, documentaries, and blogs intending to #FlipTheScript on adoption by giving voice to those who have been muted, disregarded, and marginalized as disgruntled, “bitter” or “angry.” AdoptionLand should be required reading by adoptive and pre-adoptive parents, anyone considering placing a child for adoption, lawmakers, all who work in the field, and all who are concerned with social justice, human rights, and child rights. It is also highly recommended for anyone wanting to know what it’s like to be adopted.”
Mirah Riben, Researcher & Writer on adoption since 1979. Author of The Stork Market: America’s Multi-Billion Dollar Unregulated Adoption Industry.

“This is a must read for anyone. A captivating book that brings us the voices of those who live the consequences of adoption. The world at large should listen and draw conclusions. We cannot undo mistakes happened in the past, but we can make sure that such mistakes will not happen again.”
Roelie Post, Civil Servant of the European Commission and author of For Export Only: The Untold Story of the Romanian Orphans.

“…The last years have brought new insights from an institution shielded by secrecy. A recent book, Adoptionland: From Orphans to Activists gives the perspective of the adoptees….”
Mariela Neagu, Secretary of State for Children’s Rights in Romania (2007–2009). MST in International Human Rights Law from the Department of Continuing Education, University of Oxford. “The Uncomfortable Place of Intercountry Adoption in the Human Rights Arena”

“Adoptionland is an insightful and groundbreaking anthology of essays by adoptees and other victims of adoption-loss who are now activists. It is a must read for anyone with an interest in adoption, migration research, human rights or anti-racism, as well as for adult adoptees, their partners and allies. Very highly recommended!”
Adoption Reform International

“Anyone considering adoption–especially adopting from another country–should read this book. I cannot praise this book enough.”
Lorraine Dusky, author of Birthmark and Still Unequal: the Shameful Truth about Women and Justice in America.

“Our continued social activism in books like ADOPTIONLAND will provide healing and answers to those still lost due to adoption and counter the adoption policies, propaganda and practices that countries and institutions still refuse to deal with, even in 2014.”
Trace A. Demeyer,
author of Two Worlds: Lost Children of the Indian Projects and Called Home

“What struck me was that these writers–whether adopted from China, India, a U.S. Native Tribe, Haiti, Germany, Korea or domestically– all wanted to find their biological families and be reunited with their people, cultures and heritages. This book would be of immense value to all those studying culture, social work or psychology.”
A reviewer from Amazon

“…an indispensable contribution to adoption literature…”
