Somebody's Child

Stories from the Private Files of an Adoption Attorney
A non fiction book by

After two heartbreaking losses, an adoptive couple find that "the third time's a charm".

A birth mother is abandoned by her adoptive sponsors-only six weeks before her due date.

A birth mother is caught in a torturous cycle of drugs, theft, and prison, where she bears one child while handcuffed to her bed.

An African-American couple adopts a biracial child-only to find racism on both sides of the fence.

Today, adoption can be a complex legal procedure, a high-stakes game of chance, an expensive investment, and a heart-wrenching drama. Here are personal narratives from birth mothers and adoptive parents alike, framed by the perspective of an adoption attorney. These stories touch on many issues surrounding adoption including adoption scams, gay adoption, and open adoption, and touch on the hopes and fears on both sides of the adoption agreement.
