Unadoptable Joy: A Reading with J.L. Wright

Unadoptable Joy: A Memoir in Poetry and Prose is an honest, sometimes gut-wrenchingly heartfelt journey. J. L. Wright pens the path of a toddler hiding in the back of a closet, intoxicated by smelly wet black rubber galoshes, to a life as a scarred child longing for adoption. As she develops, a lovingly imperfect foster family guides the course of her life. From an abusive home in the Minneapolis projects, Joy was labeled “unadoptable”––doomed to the foster care system.
