There’s not ONE positive review, or comment, (reviews 1, 2, 3) on Doris M Sippel’s NEW BOOK; An Adopted Woman’s Struggle for Identity

Just before I was about to publish this post developments occurred and other reviews have been published…not to worry I shall in time address them, individually… but for sake of historical developments…we shall continue on…

see end of this post for links to the other reviews.

Oh, sure there’s a 5-star rating but it is not a positive review! Where are all of Doris/Joan M Wheeler’s supporters, friends and fellow adoption activists? Where are the rebuttals on the comments? Joan/Doris must like to STRUGGLE, over and over and over again! What’s the point? She really put her foot in her shit this time!

In case you have NOT seen the reviews and comments this post is about the 3 negative reviews.

Review #one

BAIT AND SWITCH – CON-ARTISTRY, September 23, 2016

By Ruth Pace   Verified Purchase

This review is from: Forbidden Family: An Adopted Woman’s Struggle for Identity (Kindle Edition)

this is classic bait and switch – I purchased previously the kindle edition of Forbidden Family Duped by Adoption by Joan Mary Wheeler a year ago – Ms. Wheeler had her name legally changed to Doris Michol Sippel in June 2016 – and then changed the title of the book to Forbidden Family: An Adopted Woman’s Struggle for Identity. But this is the SAME EXACT BOOK AS THE PREVIOUS BOOK.

If the author wanted her book to reflect her name change, she should have made clear on the cover and on the selling site that this book “was previously published in its entirety as “Forbidden Family Duped by Adoption” under my adopted name Joan Mary Wheeler.”
bait and switch, scamming and thievery, con-artistry.

for my discussion forum on Joan Mary Wheeler/Doris Michol Sippel and all 4 versions of the same book go here https://www.amazon.com/gp/forum/cd/forum.html/ref=cm_cd_fp_rvt?ie=UTF8&cdForum=Fx3T0YAD0KXNPP5

I also purchased the kindle and printed book of ‘duped by adoption’, last year! I have JUST repurchased the kindle and printed versions of this RIP OFF of the same old story! Because I want to have the evidence in my hands that this author is conning Amazon and readers out of their monies! If someone purchase ‘Duped by adoption’ by Joan M Wheeler, it is the SAME as this book (Struggle for Identity) the author ONLY changed her name NOT the contents of the book.

Here is a NEW review on this author’s identical book…note the title and author’s name, the only things CHANGED

Forbidden Family: My Life as an Adoptee Duped by Adoption Paperback – November 2, 2015 by Joan Mary Wheeler (Author), Michael Allen Potter (Editor), Rene Hoksbergen(Editor)

If she wants to write about adoption that is fine but she needs to get her facts correct first …, October 7, 2016
By Amazon Customer This review is from: Forbidden Family: My Life as an Adoptee Duped by Adoption (Paperback)
All I’m going to say is this book is nothing but a bunch of lies. How I know this is she wrote lies about my parents in this book. She had no permission to put their names in this book of lies. She needs to get her facts correct before she writes stuffs about my parents in this book of fiction. I’m not sit back while she trashed my family. This book was pull from calculation because it was proven she lied. If she wants to write about adoption that is fine but she needs to get her facts correct first and stop bad mouthing the my family. So please don’t believe everything you read from Ms Wheeler. I wouldn’t recommend this book to anyone.

SAME BOOK, JUST DIFFERENT TITLE AND AUTHOR NAME

 

Review #two

By gert mcqueen on September 24, 2016

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase

This is not a new book, it is the same book as in her previous TWO! The author changed her name and title of the book, but it is not a new book. This is gross misleading of Amazon and the buying public! Look at the author’s page; it contains (shows) the other/same book! Well it did show both. Look for ‘Forbidden Family; an adoptee duped by adoption’ and look at the forward, the contents, the entire book is the same! Same hate, anger, and self-importance! Amazon should remove this book from the buying public!

Ruth Pace says:

FRAUD – SMOKE AND MIRRORS
PUTTING A NEW NAME AND A PICTURE ON A NEW COVER OF AN IDENTICAL BOOK SOLD BEFORE UNDER A DIFFERENT NAME.

gert mcqueen says:

the previous version, ‘duped by adoption’ had an editor… Michael Allen Potter (Editor) why is he NOT on this version? And the ‘forward’ was written in 2006 and was NOT rewritten by Rene to reflect Joan’s name change to Doris! This entire presentation is FRAUD. This book needs to be removed from the buying market.

THE ONLY THING CHANGED IS THE TITLE AND AUTHOR’S NAME, SAME BOOK!

 

Review # three

By Patti

She got me on this one! By Patti on December 17, 2016 Format: Kindle Edition

I love it because it sounds better than the first book and I suppose the second one too BUT it is all the same. Seems to me the author is backlashing towards her families. I find it very frustrating that someone can be so vindictive to hurt others. I read books like this to help my volunteer job that assists children in the adoption process. Families are complex, got it and sometimes adoption is what is best for the child. Look at our children’s future now, LOTS of adoptions going on because of the extreme Opioids and Heroine epidemics. Did she ever think that maybe she was protected. Reading some of discussions, leads you to other discussions. I found it interesting that in some BLOGS, Joan (Doris) adopted BUT her sisters Ruth Pace and Gert McQueen were not, they stated at a Foster Home. WOW?????? In her book she put that her mom died so she is lucky she was adopted. This link I found interesting from her 2nd book or was it her 1st (doesn’t matter all the same content) – http://www.amazon.com/Forbidden-Family-Adoptee-Duped-Adoption/forum/Fx16ZHWP5PQHHCK/-/1/ref=cm_cd_dp_hdp_fp_cq?_encoding=UTF8&asin=B00X520CGW

This reboot, of Forbidden Family, is the same as the other two books that Doris M Sippel published under her adopted name of Joan M Wheeler. While anyone, including Joan, has the right to change their name legally, it really is misleading to the buying public for the author NOT to inform people that it is THE SAME BOOK under her OTHER titles and author name. The author is totally against adoption! To her mind NO adoption is acceptable, no matter the circumstances, including abuse, addictions or other conditions. This author, whether she goes by Joan or Doris, and her other books, has several `discussion’ forums, here on Amazon. The buying public has the right to view and comment on those forums. Here are those links… you might have to copy and paste links into your browser.
