"Janine has well researched and presented the difficult and often silenced truths about international adoption, its history, the damage it does on every possible level, and some of the progress being made. I admire her courage in speaking publicly to a society in which the ideas of 'beautiful adoption' have been marketed for decades. Her writing is both informative and personal, bringing a strong humanizing element to the subject where so many people have been dehumanized in the process."
"May this be a step along the road of restoring human rights to adoptees and their first families both internationally and domestically (U.S.)"
