The Glass Half-Full Adoption Memoirs series has won multiple awards, including North American Book Awards and Idaho Author Awards three consecutive years.
Everybody knows what adoption is, but adoption has changed dramatically over recent decades. "Open adoptions" used to be unheard of, but have quickly become the norm over recent years. Open adoptions create an opportunity for biological parents to remain connected with the child even after the adoption takes place. Emotionally, this is still largely uncharted territory for everybody involved and relationships can be difficult to navigate.
