"This honest memoir effectively captures the emotional roller coaster ride experienced by many women, struggling with ambivalence, sadness, and yet, hopefulness, as they consider adoption. The author has done the hard emotional work of putting her son’s best interest at the heart of the process." Dr. Marilyn Regier, Executive Director/CEO, The Barker Adoption Foundation
ABOUT THE BOOK:
One Child for Another is the story of how one child found the strength and courage to protect another from a difficult set of circumstances and somehow managed to rescue herself in the process.
Thirty years after placing her son for adoption, Nancy Murray delves into the experience of being the other mother to a child she thought she might never see again.
There are two stories that are usually told about adoption; the story of the child being placed with excited loving parents and the story of the child being reunited with his or her birth-mother. Rarely do we find the story of the birth-mother's experience. That's what I wanted to share with this book.
