An Update!

Dear Friends,

I’ve missed you! I am anxious to give you an update about my memoir. Everything is progressing smoothly—only I wish it was faster, as I am sure you can imagine. When I started this blog, I thought my memoir would be published in the spring, then summer seemed more realistic, ok then fall –if that’s the way you want it, dear publishing company.

I frequently hear that a new book is scheduled to be out “next year!” Next year? Really? Turns out, there are many hidden steps leading up to the publication of a book. Given this newfound dose of reality, it would be irresponsible of me to give you a date. The softcover and e-book editions may be available in 2019—the hardcover in the new year. I will keep you informed, but if they all launch at the same time, it will be 2020.

In the meantime, Happy Halloween! Let’s enjoy the beautiful fall colors and precious time with family and friends as we look forward to Thanksgiving. I would love to hear how you are doing.

Great to hear from you and know that the publication date will be here soon. I totally agree with your suggestion of enjoying the beautiful fall season. I looked for you at the KREA luncheon last week. The crowd was good and the restaurant was much improved over last May. Keep in touch with your memoir’s progress! Hope to see you soon!

Dear Yves and Lucie, Thank you so much! xo

“there is no one like YOU”

You’re Here–Welcome!

My name is Bonnie. My parents adopted me when I was 8 months old. I’ve written a memoir about my life and the difficult search for my original identity. After 35 years, I have my answers!
I hope my story is an inspiration for you or someone you know who is searching for their birth parents and family ancestry.

Which came first–the chicken or the egg? Or in my case–the book or the blog?

Good question!  The book came first. My blog has the same name as the book. Each blog post tells you something about me. By nature, a memoir is personal. My persistence to find answers to my identity and write a memoir was a soul-searching, personal journey. It’s sad at times, but often fun and joyful.
