Heaven and Earth
Barbara U. Birdsey
Review by Allison Martin
Moving Heaven and Earth is the first hand account of Barbara Birdsey's
adoption of her baby from Guatemala and her rather unnerving experiences
as an adoption facilitator. This is not your usual personal adoption story
as Birdsey ran into some serious problems during her adoption and in her
efforts to assist others to adopt. The book describes in great detail
the ups and downs of her adoption expereinces. Most international adoptions
end very happily, but some do not and some leave parents with residual
concerns. In effect, this book that describes some of the flaws of adoption
education and regulation in the United States, as well as pitfalls that
can arise for those adopting internationally. Her experiences make a good
case about the need for better adoption regulation and oversight.
