Pushing up the Sky
In 1987, Terra Trevor and her husband Gary adopted a ten-year-old daughter from South Korea. Her new daughter experienced difficulty adjusting to becoming the oldest child in a mixed blood American Indian-Caucasian family. Her birth daughter, usurped from oldest to middle child, had a difficult transition too. Then her son, also adopted from Korea, was diagnosed with a brain tumor, an event that changed all of their lives forever.
This is the story of a remarkable family facing incredible challenges. It is a story of compromises and insights, profound joy, deep suffering, and terrific rewards. Parenting birth and adopted children — is one theme of this book. Most of all, it is a story on the meaning of family, and learning to let go of expectations and to forge a new identity.
