‘Relinquished, Returned, Rejected’ by Jackee Ashwin

Relinquished, Returned, RejectedA true and very personal story about becoming a mother, losing one baby to forced adoption and another to stillbirth, then years later reconnecting with your adult son and making tough life decisions.
Despite the difficult subject matter, Jackee Ashwin has told her story in an easy-to-read straightforward style that pulls no punches.
By the end, those who have not experienced the trauma of losing a newborn will have some understanding, while those who have will feel they are not in it alone.
A strongly-written, genuine account of what it was like to have been part of the ‘stolen white generation’. In Jackee’s own words, ‘If I can help one other person come to terms with what happened, writing my book will have been worth it.’
