by Jeanette Yoffe, M.A., M.F.T.

A poignant true story of a woman who turned her tale of foster care and adoption by a Jewish family into a heart-rending play. A courageous and energetic storyteller, she brings life’s complex issues of identity, strength, character, and charm to the stage. We experience what it must have been like to grow up adopted.

The reader is taken on a beautiful journey that explores self-identity, the importance of family, and the search for self. We follow her path and realize we are all in a constant search despite our experiences. In a world that sheds darkness for many abandoned children, Jeanette sheds light. She shares both harsh reality and inspiration down roads that are universal in their truths. She instills that love has no boundaries.

Her story is rich with wit and humor, whether it’s auditioning for a family or being brought in for a line-up, it is spiced with the trials of a young girl’s journey into adulthood. What’s Your Name, Who’s Your Daddy? is the odyssey of one adoptee who challenges us to laugh, cry and go inside our own souls and explore the beauty and courage we all encompass in ourselves.

Scenes include Foster Care Auditioning For a Family My New Home Roll Call Adopted! Mother Scouting Jadonna New York City, here I come! Oh, Father Book Pals.

I want to share with you about the power of this play. 

Jeanettte Yoffe is a strong, resilient human. The story that she tells from ‘the inside’ is an incredible insight into the complex, emotional world of adoption. It’s hard to understand the experience of someone who has experienced the things that Jeanette has, but her writing takes the reader for the ride through this amazing journey. It is both illustrative and compelling, and Jeanette manages to maintain the perspective of a child layered with the wisdom of an adult. Jeanette has transformed the experiences of her youth into a life of compassion, empathy and service. She is inspiring and thoughtful, and anyone who is curious about the internal lives of adoptees–no matter the circumstances of the adoption–should read this amazing book!
