The Other Side of Adoption

We are going to take a look at the other side of adoption by speaking to a person who has lived it.

Author Trace A. DeMeyer reads from her book: One Small Sacrifice Lost Children of the Indian Adoption Projects

Secret adoptions had a purpose - to break up North American Indian families, to assimilate us, to tame dirty savages. What is known about the Indian Adoption Projects and the aftermath has been pretty much secret. . .Until now. An unforgettable narrative of a Native adoptee experience plus an expose on the billion dollar adoption industry still operating today.
