‘Chosen’ brings together writing and poetry by over 50 adopted adults born between 1934 and 1984. Some are established writers, others are new and emerging whilst some have never been published before. They capture a broad range of perspectives: adoption within the extended family; late-discovery adopted adults; transracial and transnational adoption; those who have searched for birth family, and those who did not search but were found by a relative. The themes of identity and belonging, roots and searching and acceptance and healing permeate these accounts.
