Thank You Son for Finding Me:
A Birthmother's Story
Beth J. Kane
This is one of those rare books that will touch the hearts of all readers whether or not
they have been personally affected by adoption. It is about love, forgiveness, understanding,
reconciliation, and a bond that could not be severed. Be prepared for tears. The author relinquished
her son for adoption in 1947 at a time when keeping a child born out of wedlock was unthinkable.
Imagine her shock and joy when in 1993 she received a Special Delivery letter from that son.
The book chronicles their successful reunion and recounts the healing process that started
with her confused feelings upon being found. The letter shocked the author out of forty-five
years of denial and she began a journey of discovery that led to a healing release from the
shame and sins of the past and produced positive effects on her life today.
