Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this poignant and heartwarming narrative, renowned genealogist Pamela Slaton tells the most striking stories from her incredibly successful career of reconnecting adoptees with long-lost birth parents

Reunited follows the tradition of Ann Fesslers classic, The Girls Who Went Away, telling the riveting stories of the most powerful cases in Pamela Slatons long career as an investigative genealogist. After founding her own practice, and using a never quit policy to get around restrictive state laws, Pam has been able to locate 90% of her clients missing relatives. She has witnessed incredible, tough, life-affirming reunions, and now shares these in her own honest, unforgettable voice.

Pam has worked with and helped all types of clients, from the identical twins separated at birth, unknowingly part of a secret study on development, to Darryl McDaniels of Run DMC, who was the first client Pam worked with on camera. Perhaps her most important story is her own: after a traumatizing reunion with her birth mother, she realized that she wanted to help other adopted children have happier reunions. Reunited is a collection of these stories—both the highlights of a career and life-affirming moment that teach and inspire.
