What a beautiful story of a woman who was adopted as a baby and cherished by her extended new family. After starting her own family is curious to find out about her biological parents. As her search unfolds it becomes clear that she is untangling the past with such gentleness and caring for everyone involved. What a wonderful guide for adoptive parents, adopted children on their own search and the families that love them biological and by adoption.
My Mom and I could not put this book down! I also laughed, cried and could not wait to find out what happened next.

This book gives hope to anyone who is considering searching for their birth parents. It is a true story of soul-searching, determination and love. It is easy to read and well written in terms of giving the perspective of both sisters on the same topic or situation. It holds your interest to the end. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the human spirit, and the importance for us to know who we are.
