Candle in the Mirror is the story behind Erin Altrama's search for her biological mother. It is the honest account of an adoption search that does not have a happy outcome, and follow Erin though the trials and tribulations of searching for her biological mother. Erin's story begins in a mother and baby home run by Good Shepherd nuns near Glasgow. Here she remained with her birth mother for the first few months of her life before being adopted to an Catholic Irish family. Candle in the Mirror gives Erin's personal insight into what being adopted can mean and why the quest for knowledge about your biological family can become an all-encompassing passion. Erin hopes that by writing Candle in the Mirror she will help to raise understanding of the feelings experienced as a result of adoption and the pitfalls that may be encountered when searching for one's biological parents.

Book Description Donohoe Publications, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. 2nd Revised ed. Language: English. Brand new Book. I hope this book might give some insight into an adopted person's world. The one lived out of sight from those who know and love us. Adoption stories are numerous and it would appear, according to exposure given by media sources, mostly resolved. My quest for genetic background illustrates how resolution need not necessarily culminate with a happy 'reunion'. I have chosen to publish under the name of Erin Altrama. Erin means from Ireland and Altrama translates from the Irish language to 'adopted.' All family names and locations within Ireland and the UK have been changed in order to protect identities. My story begins in 1956 when my biological mother, upon discovery of her pregnancy, traveled from Ireland to Scotland. Her daughter was born soon after, but has remained a lifelong secret. Only one request is noted on the records, that is her desire the child be adopted by an Irish Catholic family. My shared past is of course with the mother and father who raised me. They prevail as a source of many anecdotes and shared moments recollected with love. Adopted people are aware of the benefits brought to them by their status, but being sensitive to this does not change the deep need for knowledge of our roots. During the course of my twenty-five year journey I encountered many interesting people and moments from our shared humanity. I am grateful to each one of them for their contributions which enhanced my world. Seller Inventory # AAV9780957520301
