Or by infertility and adoption. We are talking about broken narratives when we
talk about adoption because everyone's narratives are broken. The adoptive
parents' narrative is broken when they are unable to have a biological child to

adopted child's narrative is broken when she is lifted out of her own genetic and
historic family line ...

Kristin Berry | Author of Born Broken: An Adoptive Journey Luis Bush and his wife
, Doris, have been calling the international church to get knee-deep in
transformational ministry for many years. What this means is seen here in the
lives of real people who in different situations have moved out with God to
change their world. The Yes Effect shows us that it is as inspiring as it is
challenging to go into action where we are planted. Robert E. Coleman | Speaker

Betty Jean Lifton (1994, 11), a psychologist and adoptee whose books have
been influential in the domestic adoption world since the late 1970s, writes of ''the
ghosts that haunt the dark crevices of the unconscious and trail each member of
the adoptive triangle . . . wherever they go.'' Lifton has provided the world of
adoption with a compelling vision and a language describing ''the journey of the
adopted self,'' ''the broken narrative,'' (36) and the ''genealogical bewilderment'' of

If the birth mother remains involved, there is great potential for difficulties
between her and the adoptive parents. Other complications in family dynamics
are also possible. Grandparents, the birth mother, and other relatives may
disapprove of the way the child is being raised and believe that they have the

do not recommend adoption within the family. BABIES DO NOT FIX BROKEN

doctor and his family from upstate New York would be adopting me, that I would
