What if you found out that you were adopted and everything you thought you knew about your family, your security, was shattered? My Secret is about my 40 year quest for truth about who I am. But, more than that, this story is about overcoming seemingly insurmountable obstacles to achieve a goal.
My undaunted determination led me from private detectives, online sources and social agencies to covert missions like trying to collect an aunt’s DNA sample at a family gathering. There were rumors, innuendos, false leads and small steps forward and backward, all leading me to finally find my 82 year-old mother.
