Publisher's Summary

In this unique book, the reader is provided with a description of the unfolding of the adoptee's personality from birth, detailing each developmental milestone along the way, followed by different methods of healing the adoptee's wounds, including inner child work, visualizations, healing affirmations, and anger management. Every chapter includes a Myths and Realities of adoption section, a summary of the chapter and exercises to do one's own.
"Joe Soll has probably worked with adoptees and first parents more than anyone else on the planet. His approach has always involved empathy, intuition and introspection, without which dialogue runs dry. Few know the depth of the adoptee and first parent experience as well as Joe Soll, especially the dark side, where loss and loneliness reside.
Combining his experience, or perhaps we should say wisdom, with current therapeutic approaches, Joe creates an environment where growth can occur. Read his work, try it out, see how it works for you." - Robert Andersen, M.D., psychiatrist, author of Second Choice: Growing Up Adopted and A Bridge Less Travelled: Twice Visited
"Some books are so good that you can even forgive your friend for "borrowing" your copy and never giving it back. Adoption Healing … a path to recovery by Joe Soll is one such book." - Jane Jeong Trenka, Journal of Korean Adoption Studies
"As an author, teacher, and therapist, Joe Soll has brought the essence of adoption, its inherent pain to pen. His words offer counsel for the tragic separation that has occurred in the sacred union of mother and child." - Jane Guttman, DC, author of The Gift Wrapped in Sorrow.

Good material if you can stay awake

Would you listen to Adoption Healing again? Why?

Only if I can use a speed control - this reader would be great for an insomnia treatment book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Adoption Healing?

The book is instructional, not narrative.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Elan O'Connor?

Mike Chamberlain. He is an excellent reader, and an appropriate choice since the author is male.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The book is instructional, not narrative.

Any additional comments?

The reader was easy to understand and had no accent, but she seemed to blod through this book like a sleepwalker. Perhaps she felt the intended listener would be an adopted newborn?

Valuable resource, but limited midset from author

Useful and recommended resource, but all based on some limited tenets from author. Quite repetitive
