She’s one of the co-authors of the book, The Adoption Triangle.
The Adoption Triangle is a classic. I found Baran’s book to be honest, articulate, well-versed in historic adoption practices, and full of insight. But here’s the thing. This book came out in 1978, and the fight for open records continues to slog on. Why? The known best practices of a lifetime ago are still not being practiced.
I read The Adoption Triangle ages ago as I began to search for my son, and found it to be a helpful book as I took my first steps on the road to reunion.
Thank you, Annette Baran. Rest in Peace.
There are videos of her interviews on youtube. It’s really a thrill to see how her thinking on closed records evolves.
