I interrupt my sequence of 3 reviews, and my comments, to bring you this newest one; too good to wait! #4 Patti Weber

update August 31, 2015

seems that the author has updated her e-book, no surprise there, she’s always updating the ‘truth’…anyway…I want to update my posts as I go along…see my latest ‘comment’ on the end of my first comment.

As I have stated, but if you have not seen it, according to Amazon’s policy, I am NOT allowed to ‘review’ the garbage book of Joan M Wheeler, because, according to my ‘purchases’ I am ‘known’ to the author! Dah! I’m in the dam book but I can’t write a review! And my name can NOT be published. So Amazon gave me a name; ‘a purchaser’. So that at least gives me the assumption that I am a ‘verified purchaser’ even though they won’t allow me to speak via my own name! So be it. I have many other avenues to speak my mind about Joan’s lies. Yes, for the record I have purchased the e-book and so have others in the family. Over time, this blog and the Facebook page shall get to the ‘guts’ of the book. For now I’m concentrating on reviews and working up many blog entries.

In any event, imagine my surprise on the morning of, 22 August 2015, when I checked Amazon and saw a review published the day before! This is review #4.

Just finished…barely  By Patti G. Weber on August 21, 2015

This review is from: Forbidden Family: My Life as an Adoptee Duped by Adoption (Kindle Edition)

While the book was somewhat informative, it is the story of one woman’s reunion experience. If you are looking for a feel good book. This is not it. While I respect the author’s feelings because they are hers, the book comes across as being very bitter, and the author as a somewhat unlikeable victim. While I feel somewhat sorry for the author, I think she judged a lot of what happened to her in the early 1950s /60s by the standards of the 70s 80s 90s and even up to now. Adoption laws and feelings about adoption, contrary to her observations, have changed since she was adopted in 1956, and even since she was “found” in 1974. I think the biggest sadness in this book is not how she was “wronged by everyone” but that she never seems to understand her adoptive parents and the decisions they made in the 50s and 60s and respect those feelings and decisions just like she expects everyone to respect hers. I came away from reading the book feeling angry. Adoption has touched my life, and it hasn’t always been in a positive way, but this book is a horror story written by a victim who refuses to see the positive side of any part of her life.

After thinking about and sharing it with others on Facebook, I wrote the following comment on Amazon.

Your initial post: Aug 22, 2015 8:25:26 AM PDT

a purchaser says:

Well it’s about time that someone wrote an objective review that is spot on! Yes, the `sadness’ of this book is in the author’s exploitation of both sets of parents and families, as well as the one-sidedness of the author’s views, anger, hate and lack of compassion. Narcissistic personality comes to mind; it’s all about them! A reader SHOULD be angry after reading this piece of garbage. It never should have been written or published a second time. The author falsely believes that `her’ victimhood will prevent others from adopting. The only positive side of the author’s life is that she CAN get this garbage published!

And my updated comment on Aug 31, 2015…

Be aware that the author has began to ‘rewrite’ her ‘truth’ again! Apparently doesn’t like the initial responses she’s gotten so she took out chapters 49, 50, 51, 52. Reading this book, with the potential of having rewrite after rewrite, would make anyone angry! Which version of the truth can anyone believe, there’s many versions of it! I can’t wait to see what she updates on those chapters when she’s done rewriting them….again.

Now…What I could not say on Amazon!

Yes, it is refreshing and ‘about time’ that someone, NOT part of Joan’s click of angry adoptees or those that she has sucked into her charming personality BS, has spoken truthfully about the contents of the book!

The book is not fully truthful, for it is written wholly by ONE person and that person’s view of everything and everyone, and in addition, who has it out for everyone who doesn’t think like her. So her story of her reunion, without input from others, is not a true story.

Yes the book is not a feel good one. I, and others, who have been her victim don’t ‘respect’ the author’s feelings. We did that once, twice, three times and you know what?… we all got shafted, wronged and hurt, over and over again. The author is bitter, she’s full of hate.  Yes she is never ‘likeable’, once you cross her. Many male friends have found that out the hard way. She’s a user. I know of several ‘adoptees’ that have come forth with horror stories of their own dealings with Joan. No one in the birth family feels sorry for Joan. We all gave her everything, all our love and feelings, and she not only step on us; she used us and libeled us now TWICE.

It doesn’t matter what time period, of adoption laws, Joan argues against, when it comes to adoption and its laws. She wants to abolish adoption everywhere! Joan does not recognize any other authorities beyond her own! She is, amongst other things, a narcissistic, it’s all about her and her view; don’t confuse her with facts, they don’t exist to her.

She has a persecution complex, so why would she ever consider the feelings of others? Everyone is out to get her! Sadness oh yes! She is pathetic.

Patti G. Weber’s statement…‘this book is a horror story written by a victim who refuses to see the positive side of any part of her life.’…hits it right to the CORE of the matter of Joan M Wheeler. Joan has no life because she has no positive aspect in her life. She rejects anything ‘divine’. She rejects anything that doesn’t or anyone who doesn’t CONFORM to her views. Period! Thank you Patti G. Weber.

UPDATE April 30, 2016

A couple of days ago I noticed that my two comments were deleted and there was a new one from Dana Seilhan, a well known crude loud mouth that always goes after Joan’s sisters and any one who does not accept the party line that adoptees are victims!

Anyway…here are the ‘newest’ comments on this review.

Dana Seilhan April 28, 2016

Um, right and wrong aren’t measured by what year it is. The cold hard fact is that people treated this woman like crap simply because she was adopted, something she had never asked for in the first place, and she has every right to be angry. You sound like you think you have presented an original argument. You haven’t. It’s the same cowardly old crap trotted out by every person who feels uncomfortable with someone else expressing negative feelings. That says a hell of a lot more about you than it ever will about Joan. Maybe you should go talk with a therapist about it. And consider this: The crap you spewed in this “review” is likely part of the reason she IS bitter. You would be too if all you ever caught from people was crap. And it’s not enough for someone to do some nice things for you sometimes if they’re just going to turn around and abuse you right afterward.

gert mcqueen April 29, 2016

Was Dana in the author’s life to know first-hand that she was mistreated because she was an adoptee? Second hand information, expressed either verbally or written, is considered hear-say. The author’s own speculations, wondering about and second-guessing what others thought or did or would do, as she presents in the book, is also a form of hear-say. The author’s adoption had nothing to do with her relationships in either the birth or adoptive families. It was the author’s OWN behaviors to others, which of course she does not take responsibility for, were what created certain negative outcomes. If the author, and others, believe that the author had a lot of CRAP thrown at her, and that the author is entitled to be bitter, then those beliefs only enhances the views of others, like this reviewer (Patti Weber), who see the author as a life-long victim of her own designs. Patti’s is an objective review! The `sadness’ of this book is in the author’s one-sided views, anger, hate and lack of compassion. A reader SHOULD be angry after reading this piece of garbage. The author seems to believe that `her’ victimhood will prevent others from adopting.

Ruth Pace says:  April 29, 2016

Dana says “right and wrong aren’t measured by what year it is.” – I don’t think the reviewer Patti was referring to right and wrong, but referring to something that I myself noted on my blog. That social circumstances were not the same in the 1950’s as they are today. More specifically – the problem of infant and child care issues. There were no day care centers in the 50’s as we have now. Social Services, particularly public assistance, was also not the same as we have now. The author’s father HAD to go to work to earn money to feed and clothe his children. Bringing an infant to work with him was not a viable option. Staying home was out of the question. What was he supposed to do with a three month old infant, a three year old toddler and a five year old child during the day while he was at work? The older two children, 8 and 9 years of age were in school, but does Dana recommend that the author’s father to have left her lying in a crib unattended for more than 8 hours a day with no one to watch her except a 3 year old and a 5 year old?The author’s father did the best he could – his parents were elderly – his father was an amputee (one leg), was not able to care for 2 small children and an infant. His wife worked out of the home. The author’s father’s landlord and landlady also could not “babysit” every day while he worked, nor was any neighbor. Other relatives could not do it either. So the author’s father did the best thing he could – he relinquished the infant for adoption. If Dana wants to talk about right and wrong – I think leaving a 3 month old in a crib UNATTENDED, hungry, sitting in a dirty diaper all day is wrong, wrong, wrong.

(1 of 3) What ‘duped by adoption’ Joan M Wheeler’s ‘friends’ have to say about her latest piece of garbage; reviewer number one. (1 of 3) #1 Fred Tomasello

update Aug 31, 2015…

seems that the author has updated her e-book, no surprise there, she’s always updating the ‘truth’…anyway…I want to update my posts as I go along…see my latest ‘comment’ on the end of my first comment.

I am placing each reviewer, and my comment to their review, in three separate posts, for they each are worth of a post of their own. This introduction paragraph will be used for each one, as the necessary background needed if the posts are read out of order.

When I first saw and then purchased Joan’s latest remake of OTHER peoples’ lives, there were no reviews. It wasn’t until AFTER she saw that I quoted her, on a news site, that she announce it and promote it. Once she did that I went back to Amazon and placed a review, which subsequently was removed because I ‘know’ the author! My name was removed, via Amazon, on my comments to the reviewers to read ‘a purchaser’. That’s Amazon’s policy! One of the three reviewers did NOT like my comment and removed her comment! Gosh what friends Joan has, they can’t take the heat!

Reviewer number one and my answer;

Think you know adoption? Fred Tomasello Jr. June 19, 2015

 “Nobody thought about it. We just wanted a child.” The “it” is adoption. These are the words Joan Wheeler’s adoptive mother related to her years later and they equal the preconceived ideas about adoption held by me and millions of others.

A phone call at age 18 starts the “reunion” and carries the reader on an emotional roller-coaster that continues for decades. The raw, descriptive language connects as secrets and family nuances are revealed. Every page is riveting and the candid details are gut wrenching. Long years of discovery, rejection, introspection, research, maturity and courage merge Joan’s memoir into a laser light focusing on the pure importance of truth.

While undergoing years of severe emotional stress, I am amazed that Ms. Wheeler was miraculously able to write cogently about her families. Her clarity and conclusions enhanced my understanding of adoption. As Joan’s natural father admitted years later, “But if I had education, none of this would have happened.”

Gert’s reply…under comments… ‘a purchaser says’

 Think you know adoption? Not all adoptions are equal! Adoption isn’t a ‘one-size fits all’. I also have adopted! So YES I do know about adoption!

This garbage book, is NOT a work of fiction! The author writes about REAL people, from ONLY her, an adoptee’s, perspective who believes she’s been ‘duped by adoption’. The result is nothing short of exploitation of the REAL people the author writes about.

“Every page is riveting and the candid details are gut wrenching.”

Stop with the ‘drama writing’ critique! This is not a paper for review in the ‘writers’ guild. Joan’s style is FULL of that kind of sensationalism! None of which portrays reality nor the PEOPLE she’s writing about.

Let’s see about ‘education’? At location 7089 the author says…

‘It would have been better if my natural family (and adoptive family) supported me in counseling and if they went to counseling too. They refused to read articles and books about adoption psychology or attend support groups or conferences. Not one single person in my natural family ever picked up a book about adoption psychology or an adoptee’s memoir.’

This book/counseling whining stuff as well as this false statement …”But if I had education, none of this would have happened.” … and other kinds of nonsense are just red herrings that the author throws around when others don’t ‘do her bidding’.

I was educated, during the process of adopting, didn’t listen her dire warnings, for she was not part of the process; she punished me. You think you know adoption? Think again.

MY UPDATED COMMENT…

Wow! did you know that an author can update an ebook and change or eliminate things? I just got a update on this book and guess what? So far I’ve noted that there is a new ‘forward’ that wasn’t before AND that the book ends at chap 48 instead of 52! So the book ends at location 6984 but I had given reference 7089 and quoted the author about ‘education’! Perhaps the author didn’t like me quoting her? Rest assure I do have a copy of the ORIGINAL, and as time perhaps I shall continue commenting.

Gert here again…what I couldn’t say on Amazon.

It amazes me that people fall for Joan’s BS! Don’t people think while they are reading? Is there no critical thinking or questioning? Obviously NOT. Joan seems to believe that if people READ about adoption they would NOT adopt! That is wrong and dangerous thinking. In Joan’s retelling of ‘her’ life, she puts words into other people’s mouths; that’s called ‘creative writing’. Fred ought to know that! He is only one of many that have been ‘conned’ by Joan’s ‘charming’ personality and imaginative memories.

Joan hates being adopted and yet within a few short years, after reunion, she poisoned every relationship, in the birth family, for she NEVER allows anyone to think for themselves. She was so ‘hurt’ when the father that ‘gave her up into adoption’ ADOPTED a step-child! Joan also was ‘hurt’ when I and second husband adopted my son, because of the change in his birth-certificate.

Joan does NOT care about anyone’s circumstances behind the REASONS why they are adopting. Joan is an adoption abolitionist. She has a victim mentality and she puts that spin on each and every encounter. Joan refuses to understand that life isn’t the way any of us want it to be. Life is what happens, period.

Our father did what he had to do at the time that his wife, my and Joan’s mother, died. No amount of kicking the ‘dead horse’ and whining about it is ever going to change the fact that Dad HAD ALL THE KNOWLEDGE AND EDUCATION he needed to make that decision he made in 1956. Dad also knew what he was doing when he adopted one of his step-children. Why, because the child wanted him and not her birth father!

And there’s something called ‘child support’. Not all fathers pay it! Some step-fathers (mothers) will NOT adopt because if they do, the child will LOSE the Social Security death benefit! Joan doesn’t care about any of that.

I and my second husband had all the education and knowledge we needed when we adopted. We were investigated and gee…we passed! My children were teenagers, spoke with the judge, and had to give their own permission. None of that mattered to Joan!

My children’s father did NOT want to pay the support monies. He wanted his children adopted! None of that was or is Joan’s business. But because I would NOT listen to her and refused her contact with my minor children for her interference in my family, she punished me via calling two false child abuse reports against me.

So because she is adopted, she has the right to write two books of lies? She cares not of the damage she has done to MANY people in both the adoptive and birth families. She cares only about herself; the ADOPTEE.

NO book on adoption would have STOPPED Joan from being placed into adoption in 1956. Nor would a book have STOPPED our father from adopting a step-child in the 1970s. Nor would a book have STOPPED me and husband from adopting my child/his step-child in 1981. Joan needs to get a book education herself and leave the rest of the world alone. Oh wait! She has two college degrees! Never had any significant job in or out of ‘social-work’ but she’s an expert on everyone else’s lives and whether or not they choose to adopt.

My initial review, of Joan M Wheeler’s e-book, placed on Amazon

I had ‘found’ this new and improved piece of garbage by accident in June of 2015. Both Ruth and I have been ‘enjoying’ it waiting to see what developed. Joan herself had been very quiet about it.

But then I broke our silence when I ended up quoting her, from this new book, on a news site, July 17, 2015.

Here is the quote/location 8019 of Joan’s that I quoted…

‘In June of 2014, a group of angry, disgruntled misfit adoptees banded together to form their own activist organization after the NY Legislature slapped a chokehold on the existing Adoptees’ Bill of Rights two days before the bill came up for a vote. In what should have been a vote to give adoptees permission to receive uncertified copies of their sealed birth certificate, NY adoptees roes (rose?) up, called their legislators to kill the bill. The bill was indeed killed, resulting in yet another year of wasted effort by adoptee activists. Better this than to have a law that would give a small group of hysterical birthmothers, judges, and adoption agencies their way, to claim that ‘birth’ parents have the right to remain anonymous and to redact their names from the released birth certificate and to prevent adoptees from contacting them. The new adoptee lobby group, NY state Adoptee Equality, can be found on facebook and twitter at @NYAdoptEquality.’

When I placed that quote on the news story a representative of the organization knew nothing about it or who wrote it and said that it does NOT represent the organization. This MEANS that Joan LIED about and MISREPRESENTED this organization. It is IN PRINT in this new piece of garbage! Joan has no sense of what she does!

In any event, Joan immediately took action, when she saw that I quoted from her book. Within hours of my quoting her, she ANNOUCED the book in a ‘world-wide’ Amazon event! What utter bullshit!

So, not having been back to Amazon, since I purchased the garbage, I checked the site and noted that there were three reviews.

Here in this post is my initial review, which admittedly was hastily written.

Be it known that this ‘new’ e-book is just the same book that was published by Trafford Publications, in 2009, and pulled from publication, by the publisher because it was deemed that the author, Joan M Wheeler, violated their contract. She signed a contract that said there was no libelous materials in the book. Two birth sisters provided documents to prove that what Joan Wheeler wrote, about the birth family members, were indeed untrue, and many others aspects of Trafford’s rules. The birth sisters myself and Ruth Sippel Pace have had this e-book since June 2015. Eventually we shall address this book, in depth, just has we have in the past with the first one. We have already made note of many ‘new’ lies and things she stole from OUR BLOGS.
see these blogs on wordpress for background

Amazon REMOVED my comment because ‘I am known to the author’. My ‘comments’ to the other three reviewers are listed as ‘a purchaser’. One of the three reviewers REMOVED her entire review because she did NOT like my comment to her review! Boy do I have POWER!

Also note that only ONE of the three reviewers that Joan GOT to write for her actually PURCHASED the piece of garbage. So how can someone who has NOT purchased the book give us a good review? They can’t, they are taking Joan’s word for what’s in the book, always a wrong thing to do, even if they only read an author’s copy.

I know that two of the three names of those reviewers are PERSONAL friends of Joan’s, for I’ve had DIRECT correspondence with them, over the libelous contents of the first book!

The three are…

1) Think you know adoption? Fred Tomasello Jr. June 19, 2015

2) A personal account of the complications  created by adoption and how these could be reduced EvelynR June 21, 2015

3) FORBIDDEN FEELINGS ON A FORBIDDEN TOPIC FINALLY OUT OF THE CLOSET 30 June 2015 By Lori Carangelo –

I will address each of them in detail in another post.

And if that isn’t enough PR work, Joan is beginning to do more. Just today, 12 August 2015 she looked up a six month old comment to promote her new shit, directing her announcement to Ruth.

Joan Mary Wheeler  Ruth Herr Sippel Pace • 3 hours ago

“Forbidden Family: My Life as an Adoptee Duped by Adoption” is now re-published and is available on Amazon. No one ever sued me for libel. This is all a war against me by the very sisters who found me in 1974. Always baggering me, always telling me to shut up about my life. I have written a book because I am adopted, they are not. We have no contact for many years. I want them out of my life, but they keep showing up!

And yes…Ruth and I made a couple of comments…here’s mine.

‘when someone writes about me and my children and my family I WILL continue to speak up about it. This new and improved piece of garbage is BEING addressed. Joan’s contract with the first publisher was violated by JOAN because she violated the rules of the contract. If anyone sees our ‘dispute’ with Joan as worthless…think about how YOU would feel if a family member wrote lies and fabrications of YOU. Mark my words…Joan is a liar and we shall continue to prove it USING HER OWN WORDS.’

‘it should also be noted that I wrote a review of this new book but because I ‘know’ the author my review was removed and my comments to the 2 remaining reviews are listed as ‘a purchaser’. The third reviewer REMOVED her entire review because she DID NOT like my comment! Rest assure that I shall make PUBLIC everything, that was on Amazon before it was removed and what is currently on and anything else that shows up…Joan Wheeler does NOT get to tell lies over and over again about me and my family…so yes I shall continue to SHOW UP’
