Gloria Searched and Was Found

Four decades. One state. Three countries. Two continents. Sixteen years of searching. Bonded at Birth is an inspiring story of loss, survival, determination, and persistence. What begins as a compelling journey searching for her birth mother develops into a passionate quest when Gloria plunges into the world of genealogy research to discover her paternal roots. With an adoption that’s kept secret and with no information other than a yearning to find her roots and heritage, can Gloria do it?

Redmond, WA, June 22, 2016 --( Adoptees have the right to know their origins and their heritage.

She searched and was found

What if she or he were an adoptee raised in a family that kept her or his adoption secret and he or she found out about their adoption in an absurd manner? What would happen if he or she faced medical conditions throughout their lives but lacked knowledge of their medical history? Would he or she do everything possible to seek out the information?

"I had no starting point for my search except the basic identity questions I wondered about," said Gloria. "Who was I? Where did I come from? Did I have roots? How did I fit into this world? And later on, had I bloomed and could I help others bloom, too?"

With her new book “Bonded at Birth,” Gloria will take the reader through her experience as an adoptee and the multiple medical events that affected her family and herself. Beyond the odds, without the most basic information necessary, she searched and was found.

“Bonded at Birth” is a story of loss, survival, determination, and persistence. It 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.

The story covers one state (New York), three countries (Canada, the United States, and Israel), and two continents (North America and Asia). Overall, it covers sixteen years of searching and a little over four decades since her first adoption.

“Bonded at Birth” will inspire and motivate even those who think it is not possible to find with the amount of information they have, to get out there, search, and be persistent.
