I am a new first-time writer looking for a/several critique partners as I am writing my memoir about my experience of being given up for adoption by my German mother, the effects of my international adoption, and my search and reconnecting with my German family. The title of my book covers my themes. My focus is on overcoming the effects of adoption and reflects on a positive journey. Please note the sensitive topic of Race as a key factor in this book as the title reflects. Hopefully, if you are a match we can work closely together. I am focused on completing the work by Spring 2018 to publish Summer 2018. I am a very open bottom line person who wants the feedback to be truthful so that I can publish the best-written book possible. My ego is under control (smile). Thank you.
