November is all about family.
This year join me in celebrating family by creating a conversation about adoption.
Why would I want to make people uncomfortable like that?
Because truth is where love begins.
Difficult decisions that affect the development of a family should always come from a foundation of love and concern for the well-being of individuals.
My novel, Jules Fae: A Story of Adoption and Reunion, was published on November 19, 2022. A day set aside for us to celebrate adoptees everywhere.
In the words of my friend Natalie Serber, "When we expand our definitions of family, everyone is uplifted."
Jules Fae is Terrie Novak’s debut novel. She is an adoptee and privileged to a rare abundance of love shared with her bio kids, adoptive parents, first mother, and biological siblings. Terrie lives in Portland, Oregon.
Jules Fae is a story of longing, perseverance and love.
A story of adoption and reunion, the beautiful novel traces how we survive the deepest cuts and what it means to make a family. Terrie Novak, with her insightful and intimate voice, reminds us that no feeling is final, and that the human heart is a powerful force for strength, resilience and generosity. She shows us that when we expand our definitions of family, everyone is uplifted.
