Fate has a way of impacting people in different ways. For an adoptee, their fate was determined by the birthmother who surrendered them to adoption. Not one single element of that was ever in the adoptees control. Was the birth mother's decision to disengage the best for the child or the mother? Is there ever any way to determine that? For most adoptees like me, there are critical elements missing in their lives. And no matter how well we were loved and cared for by our adoptive parents, it's not enough to carry on through life without understanding the origins of our physicality and the circumstances that led to our adoption. We need to know where we came from and who created us. We have an insatiable desire to identify with someone of similar genetic traits, and it's not ok to someday leave this planet without knowing how we got here. Do we have other brothers and sisters out there, and if so, do we have similar physical features or common personality traits? If we search and locate our siblings, will we be as compatible as we may have been if we were raised together? Can one form close-knit bonds with a newly discovered sibling they first meet in their adulthood in the same way they could have if they had grown up together? Are we the genetic carrier of some disease that could disable our children? What ethnicity(s) are we comprised of? We want to know what most non-adoptees take for granted and be informed about our genetic familial histories. You don't need to be an adoptee to enjoy this book. In fact, if you love solving mysteries, this book is a must read. It describes in detail the ups and downs during my quest to finally reveal the unanswered questions and secrets that remained hidden from me for most of my life. There were many shocking revelations during my search I never could have imagined. Join me on my journey as I take you through the emotional roller coaster ride of searching for my genetic origins.
