I finished in one day! That’s how good is this book. My new word “un-put-downable”. These are real-life stories of children used as commodities of a corrupt system. Georgia Tann was a monster in my opinion. Yet despite what happened, we see the human connection. These stories told from the adoptees POV are riveting. I’m glad the authors took that route by giving them a voice after years of being somehow less than. The psychology of it all is fascinating. I’m convinced now more than ever that people do the best they can with what they’ve been given. Flawed humans aren’t we all. Still triumph of the human spirit endures. Tears 😭 both happy and sad. My rating 5 out of 5 stars ✨!!
As always more to come.

the Tennessee Children’s Home was one of the worst offenders in child trafficking…and when we were living in Ten., my kids schools glossed over that particular chapter in the states history. Seems it wasn’t “historical” enough for the schools to teach. asshats.

It’s such a sad part of history which needs to be told so it’s never repeated. Crazy world we live in. Seems to be getting crazier by the minute. That woman was pure evil.
