Where we Belong - Emily Griffin
I enjoyed this book.
Kirby is adopted and when she turns 18 she gets the name of her birth mom and heads to New York to meet her.
As this relationship starts and grows Kirby is then interested in her birth dad.
This story is told in Chapters by Kirby and her birth mom, Marilyn.
I think it is well done and we learn a lot about how adoptions can be a positive experience.
Most books that I have read make the birth mother always regret giving the child to a family that was ready when they were not. I give Emily huge kudos for that. As a person that has this story in my life it was good to see it in a positive light.
