Lorraine Dusky managed to bring me smack dab into the middle of the 1960 s deep in caste oriented righteous thinking America where it was somehow appropriate for someone s life and well being to be dictated by complete strangers What s worse than that from a 2015 perspective That loved ones dictated THEIR actions based on the bias of the general population I lost track of how many times I found myself clenching my jaw in anger or feeling desperate in panic or fighting off a lump in my throat as I read and absorbed how Lorraine must have been trying to cope let alone thrive As deeply as I was driven into the world of the 60 s she steered a strong ominous vessel through the 70 s and 80 s as well highlighting those decades interference with or prevailing of the constant battle and struggle for Lorraine and others to get the country to come to terms with adoption and the rights of all parties involvedEvery aspect of Ms Dusky s life was touched in some way by that moment in the hospital when she gave birth Holidays dates on the calendar her social life her career etc I don t want to offer any spoilers but the second part of the book was just as heart wrenching as the first and impossible to stop reading as well It s hard for me to fathom that this book this life story of one woman and those in her life happened in the span of one lifetime I also wonder how much this impacted the way Ms Dusky has lived her life the part that is NOT able to be gauged by the statistics such as how many of these women suffer from clinical depression or how many birth mothers never had another baby etc that she shares Would this not make someone who was forced to relinuish control over a very personal matter obsessed with being in control of every possible relationship and decision for the rest of their lives I can only speculate that it would that every person or moment has to be driven by a need to have the final decision complete control and no regretsI highly recommend this book to anyone Period It s an eye opening book inside the world of adoption an incredibly poignant book about relationships self discovery family dynamics and love and a view that is not through rose colored glasses at the way American society even the medical practice dictated social norms and rules Even the footnotes were fantastic They cited sources of facts and articles of course but Ms Dusky also utilized them to have a sort of sidebar conversation about something she felt needed clarity I enjoyed her writing style so much as well It was of a conversation she wrote the way she thought and the dialogue played out so much better this way I enjoyed the book so much that I am still going to give 5 starts despite my pet peeve of a typo or 2 lingering I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

As a birthmother I have read most if not all memoirs by mothers like me as well as many by adoptees since reuniting with the son I lost to adoption at 19 We have been in reunion for 18 years now but before that I thought I was the only woman on the planet who had ever given up a child for adoption and continued to suffer from it Which was kind of silly of me since I knew lots of adoptees and adoptive parents But I d never met another birthmother at least no one who revealed that part of their life I rarely shared my deep dark secretIn 1996 when my son and I were reconnected 26 years after his birth there were not near as many books on the topic although I did find some good ones and appreciated the wisdom they imparted Those and the support groups I attended in the years that followed saved my life well my sanity anywayI thought I was done reading books about adoption Until Lorraine Dusky s Hole in my Heart came out I had to read it After following her blog First Mother Forum for many years I knew her to be an outstanding writer and that her reunion with her daughter was different from mostIn this brilliantly written and compelling story Lorraine brings it all home How most unwed mothers have no resources or options are fodder for adoption agencies seeking babies to provide to longing couples the pain that never subsides after surrendering a child and how it impacts the rest of our lives as much as we d like to believe what they said that we would forget and move on Most importantly since most birthmother memoirs revolve around unwed pregnancies among teens Lorraine drives home the point that it doesn t matter if you re 15 or 18 or 21 or 25 Even in recent years If the father will not marry you or support his child If your family is ashamed and desperately wants the problem fixed Even if abortion is legal or could have been accomplished illegally back in the day Whatever the details your choices are limited and in the end you re on your ownLorraine s story is uniue because they reunited while her daughter was still a teen Turns out her daughter s adoptive parents had been hoping to hear from her for years to learn about her medical history due to their daughter s issues The agency that handled the adoption kept them apart not passing on communications between them Who knows what damage that causedLorraine tells her story honestly not holding back on emotions and yet manages to flawlessly insert facts about adoption practices over the years the impacts of adoption on both adoptees and birthmothers and the lack of open records progress to this day Hence the subtitle A Memoir and Report from the Fault Lines of AdoptionI admire that As an author of an adoption reunion memoir I understand what it takes to tell the truth reveal your deepest fears grief and pain and admit your shortcomings and doubts in retrospect To weave in factual information so flawlessly leaves me astounded at her abilityI encourage everyone to read this book Even if you re also a mother of adoption loss Yes it will be triggering but trust me in spite of that you won t be able to stop reading I hope that adoptees read it and gain a greater understanding of the anguish their birthmother likely went through in making the decision to go through with adoption I hope adoptive parents will read it and better understand the needs of their adopted children to have to connect with their origins I hope social workers adoption agency personnel adoption lawyers and all the others who extol the virtues of adoption without revealing the traumatic downsides will read it as well For those of you who know little about the institution of adoption hopefully it make you aware of the issues facing everyone who suffers from adoption practices and closed records Hopefully it will also convince you to support opening adoption records in your stateWhether or not you have a personal connection to adoption just read it I can t promise that you won t be sad But I guarantee that you won t be disappointed
