Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0595199739, Paperback)

"All birth records are sealed and held in perpetuity to ensure that the law of confidentiality is not breached." This response met every request made by Norman Carson as he searched for his birth family.For two years Carson persisted in his search despite being continually rebuffed. An evangelical Christian, he knew that his own adoption might illustrate the fundamental Christian doctrine of adoption in Christ.Received in Grace details Carson's childhood in his adoptive family; his search, begun when he was 62; the dead ends and byways he encountered; and the rich reward that finally became his in the birth family itself.Received in Grace describes in intimate detail his Kansas childhood, the pleasures and difficulties of being a preacher's kid, and finally the fascinating history and rich variety of personalities that he discovered in his birth family.
