"The rollercoaster of emotions will move you to have a better understanding of 'why' and 'how' an adopted person and a birthparent feel the need to go “Back to the Beginning” of the person they are searching for." ~ Rachel, California        
 "I've read it twice and recommend it to every single person involved in the adoption process. Then I'd recommend it to every person outside of the process." - Judy Starbuck, Scottsdale, AZ       
"The investigators who wrote this book are not 'typical' private investigators. They are more like crusaders out to help people whose 'normal' family pattern was disrupted and who rarely have anywhere to turn."  ~ Leroy, Oak Harbor, WA    
"As a psychologist who has helped many clients get the courage to begin a search, and someone who just enjoys reading, I highly recommend Back to the Beginning." -  A Psychologist, Phoenix, AZ
"From the ins and outs of Private Investigation to the beautiful, touching and heartwarming stories, I could not put it down!" - C. Briskman, Vashon Island, WA
"Lots of twists and turns and human drama, both happy and sad." - A Police Officer, Tempe, AZ
