Lebanese Adoptees: Books

The following list is devoted to books by Lebanese adoptees, usually in the language of receiving country, but often translated into one or more languages currently spoken in Lebanon. I do not wish to review the books, and obviously I do not always share the same viewpoint on adoption as the authors. I do wish to acknowledge the variety of such viewpoints, and at the very least, the common thread among them, which is the search for origins.

    Thanks so much, Daniel. Lebanese adoptees and adoption is a topic that is pretty unknown in AdoptionLand. I’ll be linking it on our BN International Adoption page later today.
