An abandoned newborn. Temporary foster care. A closed adoption. Despite Kate’s loving adoptive family, she endures deep feelings of insecurity. Kate’s book Your Secret, My Story: A Memoir about Adoption, Identity, and Reunion takes us on her emotional journey to discover her true identity.

When Kate turns eighteen, she begins a painstaking search for her birth parents, whose names she doesn’t even know. With detective-like ingenuity, Kate tracks down her biological family. What follows is an unexpected series of disappointments, rejections, friendships, and abiding love. Along the way, Kate learns the true meaning of ‘family.’

Told with raw emotion and unflinching honesty, Your Secret, My Story is a must-read for anyone whose life is touched by adoption and anyone who wonders what it means to love and be loved.
