In December 2014 I told you about a book that I feel is an essential for anyone entertaining the idea of adoption search and reunion work. Good news. There is a (likely temporary) sale on the book’s Kindle edition.
The Girls Who Went Away: The Hidden History of Women Who Surrendered Children for Adoption in the Decades Before Roe v. Wade offers insight into the baby scoop era. The volume’s true stories allow the modern reader to better understand what many of that time period’s birth mothers experienced.
The Kindle edition of the book is on sale for $1.99. Amazon prices are subject to change, so if this has been on your reading list it is a great time to buy it.
My original post about the book is here.

I love this book, though I’ve been having to read it in small pieces as it is so full of emotion.
It is definitely an emotional read.
