Among her readers

I was struck in awe and holding back tears while reading the Personal Journeys story today by Maxene Raices. If at all possible and with my permission please forward Maxene my comments. My wife and I have 2 children through adoption…We always ask our children if they’re interested in meeting their birth parents. I hope and pray some day they will say yes. We are forever grateful and look forward to someday meeting them …What a wonderful gift a birth mother gives to adoptive parents who might never had the opportunity to become parents. I’m so glad you finally got to meet your daughter.” — Angelo A.

The Secret Wedding Party was a lovely article about a topic that, initially at least, sadly occurred to thousands and thousands of young women (my peers) who had no resources for having safe sexual relationships…Thank you for sharing your story with us and thank you AJC for honoring her with her story.” — Victoria S.
