I last saw BJ last month when she presented at the St John's Conference, a conference she was instrumental in starting. She succumbed to complications of pneumonia
More than an author of the quintessential seminal books on adoptees, more than a writer, speaker, and therapist, BJ had a heart as big as all of life and was always available to help an adoptee in need.
Always accessible to all, she recently wrote many concerned emails to me about an adoptee who was having great difficulty with a rejection. She was always available and always treated everyone with respect....graciously sharing her wealth of wisdom. A very classy lady!
She will be greatly missed as my "go to" person for such help and advise.
