Just wanted to share a book I recently published called "From Pain to Parenthood: A Journey Through Miscarriage to Adoption." In addition to sharing my story, I also provide many tips and resources for others. The Kindle version of my book will be free on on July 4, 2013. I hope to help as many people as I can, so feel free to spread the word.

Looking for some sort of book to give to my son whom I am parenting about adoption.  He doesn't understand having a brother that doesn't live with him etc.  Last time I called my agency they didn't have a clue and suggested I write a book..ha!  How can I write aboout something I can't even explain to my own child?  DUH!

“There is a high demand for quality stories about adoption because nearly sixty percent of Americans know someone who has been adopted. Everyone loves a mystery novel and the universal popularity of orphans Heidi, Oliver Twist, Little Orphan Annie, and Anne of Green Gables are inspiring and thought provoking.” —Judith Land

I was passionate about my efforts to find my roots, and the positive results I obtained after conducting an adoption search. I wanted to demonstrate in the book Adoption Detective that negative beginnings can have positive outcomes. Other adoptees will benefit from my experience, and may be inspired to do the same. Birth mothers worldwide will be encouraged to make more informed compassionate choices about accidental pregnancies, and parents will gain insight into the minds of their children.

Currently reading Thriving as an Adoptive Family, which was edited by David & Renee Sanford.  It seems to be a good overview book that deals with subjects from attachment disorder to developing a support network.

I returned to Lebanon eight years ago, and I am currently working on a book project that relates what I've learned about the trafficking of children in this country with other source countries, and compares this to similar traffickings such as slavery, gentrification, apartheid, migrant labor, immigration, etc.

Two articles I've written are distillations from this work, and they are available online at Dissident Voice:

Islamophobia and Adoption: Who are the Civilized?

The New Abolition: Ending Adoption in Our Time

“… passion comes through in her clear, easy to read e-guide.  The information is on target and delivers not only what to expect, but what to do as well with insight, compassion and real examples.  I would recommend What To Expect From Your Adopted Tween for anyone as the core issues and inherent loss in adoption span any age.” ~ Dawn Espelage, LSW and adoptive parent

I just launched my new eBook "Shield: A Framework of Self-Care for Foster and
Adoptive Families". My hope is that it will provide help and encouragement to
those in all stages of adoption. For more information, please visit

Thank you so much for your support!
