Synopsis:  Heartwarming and Inspirational True Story Shows the Power of Love

This inspiring account of adoption, reunion, and heritage from Thomas Brooks provides a timely and provocative perspective on multicultural families and powerful insights on overcoming racism and poverty.

Brooks grew up as the only child of a struggling single mother in inner-city Pittsburgh. He was battling racial stereotypes at school and searching for a place among his peers. Then he was told at age eleven that he had been adopted. He did not know it at the time, but Brooks had actually been born to a white biological mother who descended from Lithuanian Jews and a black Kenyan foreign student father.

Years after that stunning revelation, Brooks escaped the ghetto and traveled to search for his heritage. He found his biological mother in London with his previously unknown British siblings. He then located his biological father and extended family in Nairobi. His international search and the resulting reunions have profoundly affected three families in the United States, England, and Kenya.

"This story shows that with love and support, adopted kids can overcome big challenges."

Dan O'Brien, Multiracial Adoptee and Olympic Decathlon Gold Medalist

"The author’s international journey across cultures, races and continents will uplift and edify any reader, regardless of background."

Honorable Andrew Young, Former United States Ambassador to the United Nations and Former Mayor of Atlanta
