Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0646516973, Paperback)

“A reunion between family members who have been separated by an adoption can be a very emotional event. For most people there is great joy and excitement, but for some there can be anger and disappointment. … The ecstasy of adoption reunions probably needs no explanation and is often enthusiastically anticipated. However, agony can also be experienced and this is often unexpected and alarming.” Many books have been produced which describe people’s experiences of adoption and reunion. However, Evelyn Robinson’s books successfully explain in a straightforward manner why those people feel the way they do. Her books help readers to put their feelings and experiences into a useful context. Evelyn’s approach is both personal and professional, but, above all, practical and informative. Evelyn's third book, Adoption Reunion – Ecstasy or Agony?, is largely an updated and condensed version of her first two books. In it she explains simply and concisely what it is about adoption separation and reunion which causes such intense and varied emotions. Evelyn has included a selection of her responses to some of the many questions she has been asked over the last twenty years. Evelyn’s answers are always gentle yet direct and exhibit the wisdom and knowledge she has gained throughout her wide-ranging experience of working with members of the adoption community and professionals in many locations around the world.
