I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It is an amazing story that brought tears to my eyes. There were many obstacles to overcome in order to solve the mystery of her adoption. I admire her tenacity and skill. Her ability to make all the right moves at the right time is astonishing. She is indeed a remarkable adoption detective and writer. This is a topic that will enlighten many—not just adoptive families.

“Destiny is not always preordained. Life is about making choices. Our lives are the sum of all the choices we make, the bridges we cross, and the ones we burn. Our souls cast long shadows over many people, even after we are gone. Fate, luck, and providence are the consequence of our freedom of choice, not the determinants. When justice is served by following our principles, making good decisions brings us inner peace.” 6 likes
