Muldary takes you his emotional roller coaster ride of the search for his birth family in this wonderfully written and engaging book. Through his fluid writing, you share in the happiness associated with his triumphs and the sorrow associated with certain realities. Even if you are not an adoptee, you still feel all his emotions and find yourself rooting him on during his journey for the truth.

It helped me gain perspective, giving realistic expectations of searching, and finding biological family. I bought the follow up book before finishing this one, because I was curious to see how things turned out in the long term.

Enjoyed every page.

Well written and from my perspective, as an adoptee, very factual. I have not had the same success in finding my biological family. The feelings and need to know are spot on with mine.
