Amy has always written poetry and essays but her memoir, Centrifugal Forces, is a synthesis of life events. It is a culmination of dreams and visions that led up to her marriage and the adoption of her daughter, Marika. The story offers a detailed look into the intimacy of infertility experience, that raises the question of whether a DES daughter, should have ever been put through those protocols. In the journey through adoption, it brings up pressing questions of: What is family? What does family look like to me? What is soul connection? And the realization that souls choose.
This story is an offering of how Amy’s world was changed by listening to her heart, being open to magic and prayer and the influence of other like-minded stories. In the end, this big experience of infertility leading to adoption, became a life-long dream realized and a vortex of healing. In the face of things still taking shape, she hopes to invite the reader in to examine: healing shame, igniting possibility and creating one’s heart’s desire.
