By Yolande Essiembre
Long Lost Mom
Never, ever, in my wildest dreams, did I think I would write a book! Nor did I think of myself as an author when I created sessions, prepared conferences and wrote letters and reports throughout my career. But all that changed abruptly one morning when I received notice that the laws concerning adoption records were going to change. I knew many lives were about to be altered, as mine had been two years ago. Immediately, I knew deep within me that I had to tell my story.
I am very excited about writing my first book.
