Juxtapose: Seven Stories of Adoption

Juxtapose: Seven Stories of Adoption is an anthology of seven real life stories about adoption, narrated in both third person by the author; and in first person by the story tellers. The texts and subtexts in the narratives were analysed using theoretical frameworks of kinship, friendship, child rights, policies and queer rights. The people and the stories in the book are about the happiness, bonding, invisibility, discreetness, anxiety and fear.
