As COVID-19 descended and the world sequestered, six writers turned to words to help make sense of the experience.
Their collection of thirteen stories, some true, some fiction, provides a raw, multi-faceted perspective on the pandemic.
Adoption – Grief – Healing – Connection

“I Think of You on Your Birthday” will be a collection of writings from birthparents to the children they placed for adoption.
It’s a recurring question among adoptees: Does she think of me on my birthday? And it’s a recurring post among birthmoms: It’s his birthday and there’s so much I want to say but cannot.
This book will collect the messages birthparents wish they could say to their children on their birthdays.
