What if you were an adoptee raised in a family that keeps your adoption secret and you found out about your adoption in an absurd manner? What if you faced medical conditions throughout your life but lack knowledge of your medical history, would you do everything possible to seek out the information?
Bonded at Birth: an Adoptee’s Search for Her Roots is an autobiographic memoir about growing up as an adoptee under the umbrella of secrecy, being determined and motivated by multiple lifetime events to search for her heritage against all odds of success. Can Gloria do it?
Bonded at Birth takes the reader through Gloria’s experience as an adoptee and the multiple medical events that affected her and her family. Beyond the odds, without the most basic information necessary, she searched and was found.
Upon her reunion, eight days short of her forty-first birthday, Gloria goes from being an only child to the oldest of ten (nine living) siblings. After seven years of a successful reunion Gloria’s birthmother adopts her back bringing her story full circle. Genealogic research led Gloria to unexpected discoveries such as the fact that she is related to Col. William Prescott, the Revolutionary War hero and Lydia Longley, the first North American nun, who was her 6th great grand aunt.
Bonded at Birth is an adoption memoir about an adoptee growing up under the umbrella of secrecy, determined and motivated by multiple lifetime events, to search for her birth mother against all odds of success, and upon a successful reunion she makes an unexpected discovery.
Bonded at Birth will inspire and motivate even those that think it is not possible to find with the amount of information they have, to get out there, search, and be persistent.
