Given the birth parents, adoptive parents, siblings, grandparents, and other extended family members connected to each adoptee, the number of Americans whose lives are directly, intimately affected by the adoption of a child reaches into the tens of millions. Truly Yours is a candid, poignant book for all of them, and for all whose lives may yet be touched by the wondrous experience of adoption.With a thoughtful introduction by author Laura Dail, an adoptive mother, Truly Yours is full of quotes by Art Buchwald, Dale Evans, George Burns, Jamie Lee Curtis, Barbara Walters, Rosie O'Donnell, the Dalai Lama, and others. These diverse voices share observations, from funny to wise, on the joys and challenges of adoption.The number of Americans seeking to adopt has doubled over the past two years, after having held steady since 1970. Adoption is rising to the forefront of the national consciousness. Consumer interest in products-particularly books-created especially for adopted families has never been higher. Truly Yours is a beautiful and timely book for this audience, and your customers will be delighted to discover it.
