Read full description of the books:



A mixed blood Native American, Trevor and her white husband had one child before choosing to complete their family through adoption. They adopted from South Korea twice: an infant and an older child. There are two stories in Trevor s memoir. The first is about her daughter's difficulty adjusting to adoption. The second story is about her son, diagnosed with a brain tumor, an event that changed all of their lives forever, and how this family or any family must endure crises and tragedy and still find a way to go on.

The title 'Pushing up the Sky', comes from a Native American story about the power of people working together for a common good. This is the theme in Terra Trevor s memoir. This is the story of a remarkable family facing incredible challenges. It is a story of compromises and insights, profound joy, deep suffering, and terrific rewards. Parenting birth and adopted children is one theme of this book. Most of all, it is a story on the meaning of family, and learning to let go of expectations and to forge a new identity. Hope is offered as a path, with the resolve to celebrate each new day and to cherish every second of it.
