Born in Our Hearts : Stories of Adoption
By Filis Casey and Marisa Catalina Casey

Order Book

Review by Allison Martin

Born in Our Hearts is an uplifting and informative collection of stories from the adoptive triad and family, including birthmothers, adoptive parents and grandparents, and adopted children and adults. Adoption is viewed through the lenses of a virtual rainbow of participants, in different circumstances and situations, yet overall it results in a very positive and encouraging view - with twists and turns unlike any other. The stories flow from Marisa's opening story of her perspective as an adult adoptee to the last story of a young adoptee serendipitous blessing by the Dalai Lama. They are predominated set in the United States, Latin America (esp. Columbia), and China, but would be of interest to anyone adopting domestically or internationally. As well as a variety of views, all types of adoption are included - young babies, special needs, domestic, international and older children. While prospective adopters (both international and domestic) will enjoy the variety of adoption journeys, the viewpoints of the adoptees and birthparents are especially informative and will be of interest to parents who have adopted as well as those considering adoption.

The authors, Filis Casey and Marisa Casey are a mother and daughter team, brought together by adoption and both working at The Alliance for Children adoption agency. In this book, they provide a excellent resource for adoption workers, people considering adoption or who have adopted, and/or adoptees who wish to hear other's stories and perspectives.
