The following are books and articles that I recommend for adoptees searching for understanding, and others who care about adoptees and want to know how they can help.

Journey of the Adopted Self: A Quest for Wholeness by Betty Jean Lifton
Lost and Found: The Adoption Experience by Betty Jean Lifton
There is a new website that has been designed to catalog and promote books written by adoptees and other adoption-related books recommended by adoptees. (Thanks for the “heads up” Richard Hill!) Please visit it: http://adopteereading.com/
