Twins Found in a Box: Adapting to Adoption is a spellbinding memoir that chronicles the experience of adopted twins.
Twins Found in a Box: Adapting to Adoption Paperback – June 5, 2017

Jenette and Janine are adopted from Seoul, South Korea by American parents. In this book, the author explores the atmosphere in their new world, the family dynamics and the legal implications of international adoption. When the adoptive father suffers a brain injury and struggles with recovery, and when the parents have issues with their relationship, with the prospect of divorce looming ahead, the children find themselves hanging. Their legal status does not become a priority. Follow the twins as they question their origins and ask questions about their status.

Janine Vance takes readers on a ride back to the years between the ‘70s right through the ‘90s.

Readers get powerful insights into the upbringing of kids during that time. The writing is filled with relevant social and cultural commentaries and the author uses a descriptive style of writing that allows readers clear images of the setting. The conflict is well developed right from the start of the narrative when the reader is introduced to the key conflict in the story: what it takes to be adopted by parents from another country and culture. The theme of the legal rights of the adoptees and their sense of belonging are among some that are deftly treated.  Twins Found in a Box: Adapting to Adoption is beautifully written, featuring a gripping narrative voice and prose that is exciting. It is bold and engaging, hugely informative, a memoir that dares ask questions that adoptive agencies shy away from answering.
