Any author’s book should stand up to in-depth discussion of the contents! If they object…something is amiss! Proper attributions, of author and place in both books, shall be given. We shall give FULL CREDIT to the author for her WORDS.
Never mind that I have provided actual court documents and actual hand written letters by Joan Wheeler that prove Joan is a liar. Only persons with similar mental issues would actually believe a pathological liar and not an actual court document.
UPDATE, August 2016, as older posts are being seen I’m updating with links to my second blog and a Facebook page wherein I expose AGAIN the lies, fabrications and hate that Joan M Wheeler says about me and family. After the first book was pulled from publication by the publisher, May 2011, she has ‘self-published’ another ‘revised’ version. In this ‘version’ called ‘duped by adoption’ she has increased her exploitation by including PICTURES and REAL NAMES and much more personal information violating again the families. Joan has no decency NOR shame. There is NOTHING in this book for adoption reform. She is totally against adoption and her two families…

some things that are NOT in the books
Before I get “accused” of something again. I am a night shift worker. On my nights off I do sometimes be awake all night, or even snooze here and there. I did manage to get about 3 hours sleep on the couch with Captains and the Kings dvd in the background, to drwon out the wind. And I don’t need to use the search phrase “adoption reform resentment.” I’m really not interested. I’m only interested in getting out what happened to turn our adoption reunion sour.
SEE END OF THIS POST FOR UPDATE INFO
Now despite a well-thought out post that actually is put forth in a civil manner, the sentance “Do not pin any negativity on me” is indicative of this person’s lifelong attitude. Nothing is ever her fault.
How do you think a person would feel if they loaned someone a wedding dress that belonged to your mother…

Any author’s work should stand up to critical analysis and discussion; for without such, the ‘work’ is just a vanity piece written for personal attention! Because the author, of this particular vanity piece, has written ABOUT family members, it is all the more important to use critical analysis and thinking and engage in discussions.
I placed the following ‘discussion’ on the author’s page. Please do read and partake in discussion!

People can write comments on each review and can start discussions. I have six discussions about this book; Gert Mcqueen’s discussion topics. Each discussion goes into greater detail about aspects of this book. As well, you may click on my name, in any comment, to reach my profile page.
The topics are:
1) about the FORWARD.
2) Author’s description of what’s in the book.
3) changes in what’s in the book, about the author and bio sections
4) about the author and biography
5) The author is NOT a Late Discovery Adoptee!
6) The author has again rewritten the boiler-plate material!
here is the Permalink to all my discussions:
This is the third #13 review! Sib Ruth’s review was removed as was mine, via Amazon, because we are ‘not allowed’ to write a review! Then a person, who had a review, deleted it! Perhaps they didn’t want to be associated with the book!
So the total number of reviews and who wrote them keeps shifting around. But hey…isn’t #13 a ‘significant’ number!
Anyway…this NEW review is ‘short and sweet’ as the saying goes, but is NOT very sweet!

A powerful and yet very sad book, too bad everything is still the same years later. No forgiving going on.
Like I said, short and to the point and so I wrote a larger comment…

This book is not ‘powerful’; it’s seething with anger! It’s not ‘sad’; it’s pitiful and spiteful. Yep, it’s still the same, for the author is not interested in forgiving, she wants to tell her tale…so be it! As the author states, on page 366, ‘what I have learned…is to own up to the wrongs I have done, to make amends and to strive to be a better person, unless contact would be destructive to me.’ Ah, but forgiveness does NOT come with a one–way only condition! This book’s very existence is testimony to the fact that the author is not willing to forgive. For forgiveness to happen, she MUST let go of the stone that is dragging her down, and do her own work ON FORGIVING! – ‘There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.’ Hamlet, II, ii
Now let’s see how long it takes for this to become an issue as the last reviewer, Mark, turned out to be. In any event, seems as if this book is beginning to ‘stink’ as more and more people are moving away from Joan and/or don’t have much to say about it.
there’s an opening in the field
Perhaps Joan should take a long hard look at the toll that comes from beating a dead horse. Joan isn’t getting any younger, has several medical physical and mental conditions, is disabled and yet is in love with her long long years of fighting and must always remind people of them! But then again…Joan does NOT have what it takes to fill the shoes of Mirah Riben. I myself admire Mirah’s work! Joan can only slander/libel her two families, write two books of hate, rage, anger, and exploit the families for her OWN fame and fortune! Joan can only browbeat, intimidate, insult, and generally verbally beat up anyone who is pro-adoption. Joan has contributed NOTHING to the adoption reform platforms, many have disavowed her, yet she doesn’t ‘get it’. Joan is a ‘suck up’, thinking she can get an ‘endorsement’! No, Joan hasn’t got the credibility to fill ANYONE’s shoes!

here’s a great article on learning and understanding behavioral patterns…
NEW POST always good info
First, it needs to be noted that Joan M Wheeler has changed her name to Doris Michol Sippel, her birth name. She shall NEVER be that birth named person to anyone in the birth family for she DIED the same day as our mother died. So regardless of what Joan calls herself, for she has multiple screen names, I shall never recognize any but Joan M Wheeler.
Second, it appears as if Mirah is bowing out of the mainstream spotlight of adoption reform activism; that’s a topic for another post. As usual Joan is attempting to make yet another power play to get herself onto the top of the heap; Joan loves to state HOW many years she’s been fighting etc etc etc. Joan attempted a power play in 2015 with Joyce B from UI Adoptee Rights NY.
