One Wonderful You


Speaking directly to the adoptee, this wonderfully funny book explains that all adoptees are unique by virtue of having two families who contribute to their identity. It explains how biology and genetics give every individual a series of innate behavioral traits and physical features, and why the biological parents will always have a presence in the adoptee’s life through that blood relationship. Likewise, it demonstrates how experience plays an equally strong role in shaping any individual’s personality, and illuminates the ways in which adoptive families contribute to the identities of their children in a positive manner.
