Book Marking 100 Years of Cunamh


All Born Under The One Blue Sky

Irish people share their adoption stories

is a compilation of stories and poems written by Irish people who have been touched in some way by adoption. The writers of this book, which includes birth parents, adopted persons and adoptive parents all have a connection with Cúnamh. Turning the pages of this book will give you, the reader, an oportunity to experience what adoption has meant to these writers and how it has in some way shaped their lives.

You will come away having a greater awareness of the complexities and challenges that adoption brings but, most of all, you will be reminded of the strength of love, the need to belong, and the great lengths people will go to find inner peace.
