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.
