From the Author
When a story is written, it cannot be forgotten. I don't want any of my Late Discoveries to ever be forgotten.
No one, not even a mother should control another persons knowledge of his or her history.

Susan Has shared her truth, her roller coaster ride with all its ups and downs, turns and twists. The truth is is not always pretty with "all lived happily ever after" ending, wrapped up neatly with a pretty bow. The reader can see that Susan tries to do this but since it is the truth, it is not always pretty.
Susan has emerged from her roller coaster ride able to stand tall and without wobbly legs. Her strength is wondrous to us all. Thank you, Susan.
I read the book quickly in an evening and in the morning I reread it. Job well done.
Susan Bennett is a strong woman, and now she is giving back to the adoption community -- a community she didn't even know she belonged to a short while ago. The book is very well written.
This is such an important story for us all to know, not only people involved with the adoption triad of Birth Parent/Adoptive Parent/Adoptee, but for everyone who is interested in the resilience of the human spirit. It is especially important, I believe, for potential adoptive parents to be informed of how much lying to an adopted child about their origins affects the rest of their lives.
What a great read; a wonderful book. It will help you to ask some questions about your life and your origins, and in questioning your assumptions lies the value of the lesson Susan encourages us all to learn: know where you come from, so you can figure out where you are going.
