Bitterroot: finalist in Colorado Book Awards #NAAM2019



Bitterroot: A Salish Memoir of Transracial Adoption,
University of Nebraska Press
Winner of the High Plains Book Award in 2 categories: Indigenous Writer and Creative Nonfiction
Finalist in the Colorado Book Awards



Note from Susan:

I've had the honor of adding my voice to the voices of others who are part of the complex structure of adoption.  RG Adoption Consulting asked me to be a part of their programming for this month, and asked great questions for adoptees, adoptive parents, birth parents and others involved in this process.

The question I chose to answer was "What was the most challenging for you as an adoptee?"  Please click on the link to listen to the interview, labeled "Through the Eyes of an Adoptee".  
As an American Indian transracial adooptee, this question allowed for a lot of discussion of history, policy and the clash when American Indian children are placed in non-Native families. If you are interested in sharing this video, please do!

All my best for your interest in this story.
Susan

To Veronica Brown

Veronica, we adult adoptees are thinking of you today and every day. We will be here when you need us. Your journey in the adopted life has begun, nothing can revoke that now, the damage cannot be undone. Be courageous, you have what no adoptee before you has had; a strong group of adult adoptees who know your story, who are behind you and will always be so.
