My adoptive parents were open with me about my adoption from the earliest time that I could understand the concept. Maybe because Mom and Dad were wonderful parents, I had no particular interest in learning about my birth parents while I was a kid. In fact, my only real interest was in some day finding the seven-year-older brother who was being raised by my birth parents.

I started writing Blind in One Eye: A Story About Seeing the Possibilities just so that I could keep the memories of my search for my adoption history in one place. By the time I’d finished, though, the book had a bigger purpose for me. Yes, I do tell the startling details of finding my secretive birth family—and it’s a story in which I’m very happy to have played a role.
