Twenty-two years ago, New York Times bestselling author, Patti Callahan Henry’s sister placed a baby girl for adoption. Then in April 2010, a Facebook request put an end to all the waiting and wondering. Patti’s sister’s daughter had found her.

The novel, much like the true story, is a compelling narrative of love lost, love found, and a miraculous reunion that changed everyone’s lives forever.

ELEVATE Music Group recording artist Justin Anthony is an island pop artist from Miami, Florida. His music pays homage to his hometown of Kingston, Jamaica where he began his music career as a Reggae artist. He is currently working with award-winning and Grammy nominated producer Winston “Blackout” Thomas (known for his work with Nicky Minaj, Jason Derulo, MIMS, Jim Jones, Serani, and Kymani Marley), on producing his debut album in the United States.

Justin was raised in Kingston, Jamaica with his younger brother and sister. Justin’s birthmother was 16 years old when she placed him for adoption. Justin is deeply committed to his family and Jamaican heritage, and is grateful to have been adopted into such a loving family.
"I am truly grateful to have been adopted by such caring parents who provided me with exceptional opportunities, love, and compassion. I can’t imagine my life any other way. I am honored to be part of such a wonderful organization like National Council For Adoption. They're on the front lines of advocating for adoption of children who are in great need of a loving, permanent family. I know firsthand the importance of a family, and am excited to bring more awareness to the cause of adoption.”
