Freedom from Shame
Overcoming the Stigma of Depression
Amanda Harvey says: "The only way that we, as sufferers of depression, can overcome the stigma, heal our shame and be accepted as no more 'mad' than anyone else, is to 'come out of the closet'. While we conceal our condition, it will be perceived as a guilty secret, something to be ashamed of, both by society and even by ourselves. It will only be when we ourselves can confront and understand, accept and embrace, then finally expose and release our fears and feelings about our condition, that perceptions will shift and depression will be seen for what it is- a simple medical disorder, not a sign of insanity, weakness or failure."
Join Amanda Harvey on her journey of self-discovery, through the six-step healing process of Freedom from Shame.
Not My Flesh and Blood But My Heart and SoulMy Journey to Motherhood Through Interracial Adoption
Biology is only one way of being related.This deep realization of familial love that transcends convention, genetics and race is the underlying tenet of this book.
From her days as a newlywed, traveling abroad with husband Ian, the story traces the winding path to motherhood of Amanda Harvey. Throughout tales of life in Europe and Asia, Harvey finds that the blossoming of an ever strengthening maternal urge begins to shape the choices she makes.
The narrative follows the couple's journey through two interracial adoptions in Taiwan. The excitement and utter joy of bringing home their baby daughter, and 18 months later an infant son, as well as the emotional rollercoaster that their lives become in that period.
The final chapters find the Harveys in the present day, raising their beautiful Taiwanese children in the children's country of ethnic origin and embarking for a third time on the tumultuous and incredible adventures of parenthood and adoption.
