This book, based on Eric Erikson's seven stage life cycle model, will open doors for adoptees who at one time or another have wondered why they felt a particular way and had no place to turn for the answer.

Psychological approach to issues adoptees face throughout their lives. Some of it resonates with me, especially the parts about feeling that one doesn't exist, and also the dawning realization that I could die without knowing who I really am.

Goes through each stage of life & how loss/grief in adopted children can manifest itself. I found this informative - there are things I would not have recognized as grief without reading this. Recommend as a read - not sure that I would buy it to refer to in the future.
