I hope my book brings encouragement to many young children and adults who have wrestled with their identity as a result of living a life in a non-traditional family structure

Author Bryan Dixon shares the story of his childhood spent partially with his African American birth family and partially with his Caucasian adoptive family in Longing for Identity in a Black and White World: A Child’s Struggle for Racial Dignity ($12.49, paperback, 9781632210845; $5.99, e-book, 9781632210852).

Dixon has experienced first-hand the difficulties that come with a childhood of confusion and instability. While many writers focus on the long-term effects of physical abuse or neglect, Dixon seeks to highlight the emotional and spiritual baggage that children often carry into their adult lives.

“I hope my book brings encouragement to many young children and adults who have wrestled with their identity as a result of living a life in a non-traditional family structure,” said Dixon.

Bryan Dixon is a well cultured writer. A United States Army Veteran and former missionary, Bryan has served in eight different countries. While serving in Panama, Bryan met fellow missionary Eileen Thorsen. They married five years later, have five beautiful children together and are soon to be adoptive parents. Bryan holds a Master of Arts in Ministry and has a passion for educating on the importance of diversity and inclusion within family structures.
