Prison Baby: A Memoir free pdf A deeply personal and inspiring memoir recounting one woman's struggles--beginning with her birth in prison--to find self-acceptance "Prison Baby" is a revised and substantially expanded version of Deborah Jiang Stein's self-published memoir, "Even Tough Girls Wear Tutus. "Even at twelve years old, Deborah, the adopted daughter of a progressive Jewish couple in Seattle, felt like an outsider. Her mixed Asian features set her apart from her white, well-intentioned parents who evaded questions about her past. But when she discovered a letter revealing the truth of her prison birth to a heroin-addicted mother--and that she spent the first year of life in prison--Deborah spiraled into emotional lockdown. For years she turned to drugs, violence, and crime as a way to cope with her grief. Ultimately, Deborah overcame the stigma, shame, and secrecy of her birth, and found peace by helping others--proving that redemption and acceptance are possible even from the darkest corners.
