ABOUT JANINE'S JOURNEY THROUGH ADOPTIONLAND

© Copyright contact@janinevance.com

Want a short escape from reality but need to keep your head on straight? These books by Janine have been called "entertaining," "insightful," and even "mind-blowing" by readers all over the world. From a rare metaphysical and philosophical point of view, Janine has lived and studied the world of adoption culture for several decades. 

This must-read collection of books includes two memoirs, two philosophy books, two anthologies, two history books, a deep dive into the corruption of the practice, and finally, insightful ideas on how the industry of adoption could protect families.

"I BELIEVE INFORMATION IS YOUR SECRET SUPERPOWER." ~ JANINE

 

Twins Found in a Box: Adapting to Adoption reveals her personal childhood experience. Then, Janine and her twin take the reader with them to South Korea in the book The Search for Mother Missing to seek out their roots and their birth family. During her trip to South Korea, she hears the "unknown" voices told by other Korean-born adoptees. Once back in the States, she listens to the voices of domestic, late-discovery, transracial, and overseas adoptees. She spends two decades researching the history of adoption from around the world and is astounded by what she discovers. She believes you will be too. 

During her journey through the land of adoption, she realizes that most books are written by adoptive parents and for young children. For this reason, she wrote a few books intended to empower adopted people, advocates, activists, and allies.  She believes you will be as astounded at what she has found during her twenty-five-year deep-dive into the diverse yet unified land of adult adoptees.

RESEARCH | HISTORY | POLITICS

You'll love these must-read adoption books for adults geared specifically for you or someone you know who is adopted.

These books by Janine paint a very realistic picture of all aspects of adoption, including the hidden side-effects.  You will find rare global perspectives in many categories: research, politics, history, philosophy, psychology, sociology, spiritual, and religious roots. Never before in history (and herstory) or the field of adoption, has one author bravely taken on such a wide lens and a rEvolutionary study of the practice.

Choose any one book from this expansive collection and you will discover another layer of deeper understanding. Among other reviews, her work has been called "mind-blowing" and "highly recommended" by adoptees and "powerfully revealing and enlightening" by non-adoptees.

This collection of books is designed to be enjoyed by fellow adoptees. They will know a community exists and thus feel validated embellished by the awareness that they are no longer alone.
