The product of an interracial relationship in the 1960s, she spent time in foster care before her adoption by loving, yet complex, parents. In this candid account, she faces her long-standing inner conflicts with race, religion, and identity, as she searches for her birthparents and her life’s purpose. Gowan’s emotional and inspirational story deals with overcoming abuse, loss, codependency, and rejection. She demonstrates how important the multifaceted concepts of faith, family, and love are in all human relationships, and how they form our sense of self. She shares not only her own, personal insights and revelations, but also concrete strategies from other adoptees and respected professionals. The result is a compelling story that will educate and support members of the adoption and multicultural community, and a Christian testimonial about family relationships.
