Born and adopted in 1959, at the age of two weeks, Karen had an inherent yearning her whole life to find more out about her biological background. Plagued by what seemed to be genetic health problems and illness the need for current family medical history became crucial. Assembling Self is a journey in poetry through the search for her birth family and answers to numerous questions. But more importantly, to find out who she really is.
