‘The Birth Lie’ by Blythe Cantrell

Based on personal actual accounts. A young girl grows up knowing of her adoption, yet not ever feeling she fits in. She wonders through her adolescence with unanswerable questions and a felling of being lost. She faces many tribulations growing up. She experiences bullying, and alcoholic father, confusion, self doubt and depression. She faces competition with her younger adopted sister and realizes that she will never be the favorite child. Conquering stereotypes and disappointment she does begin to find herself. As soon as she reaches legal age she begins to search for her biological origins. Many new revelations of her birth and adoption are revealed. She realizes that there is much more to her story than a simple adoption. She was sold on the black market and confiscated by the state of Oklahoma like a stolen vehicle would be. Placed in foster care as a baby awaiting adoption from a family out of state is how her story starts. Finding her birth family, being accepted, loved and then upon the death of her biological sister, she is once again rejected by family. Her drama evolves over 40 years. Childhood, youth, teen pregnancy, divorce, domestic abuse, etc… are all part of the novel.
