    My Own Legacy by nineteen-year-old Katie McMillan is a candid account of the unique joys and struggles she faced as an adoptive child in a “closed adoption.” Katie’s memoir explores the many questions and emotions that surround being adopted and seems to simultaneously capture revelations, growth, and understanding that Katie gains in the process of writing her story. Honest and unembellished, Katie addresses many serious issues and feelings while recounting her life leading up to the moments when she comes into contact with her birth parents. While portions of Katie’s journey prove arduous and disappointing, she also experiences many unexpected joys. In the end, Katie affirms confidence in the dynamic person she is and maps out a clear path towards the person she intends on becoming. My Own Legacy is a must-read for teenagers whom were adopted and adoptive parents alike, the former who may relate and identify and the latter who will gain unique insight about how it feels to be...

As an adoptive mother of two foster children, I feel strengthened, better informed, and inspired having read this very touching story.< Less
