Description - Journey Of The Adopted Self by Betty Jean Lifton

The author of the adoptees bible, Lost and Found , explores the inner psychological world of adopted people and shows how the search for biological roots can be a journey toward wholeness.. Betty Jean Lifton, whose Lost and Found has become a bible to adoptees and to those who would understand the adoption experience, explores further the inner world of the adopted person. She breaks new ground as she traces the adopted childs lifelong struggle to form an authentic sense of self. And she shows how both the symbolic and the literal search for roots becomes a crucial part of the journey toward wholeness.
