Overview

Heartbreaking, inspiring, and totally true—this e-original short non-fiction story sets the stage for New York Times bestselling author Patti Callahan Henry's novel And Then I Found You.

Patti Callahan is one of three sisters, a member of a close-knit Irish American family. Yet as happy and boisterous as they appear to be, the Callahans have long harbored a heartache. Some twenty years ago, Patti's younger sister, Barbi, placed her infant daughter for adoption. The whole family respected Barbi's decision and admired her fortitude. Still, they couldn't help but wonder: What ever became of the beautiful baby who had been placed with a chosen, but anonymous family? On April 20th, 2010, Facebook gave them the answer they'd been looking for. It was a life-changing moment—one that inspired Patti to write this unforgettable true story.

Have read all Patti Callahan’s books and they never disappoint as she is a very talented author. This short e-book is a true story written with her sister, Barbi to set the stage for the NY Times bestselling author Patti Callahan Henry’s upcoming novel “And Then I Found You” (April 2013). I have pre-ordered the Nook Book coming out in April and look forward to reading. Having lived in the Atlanta area (Midtown, Buckhead, Vinings) for many years, and North Georgia in a log cabin at Big Canoe, always enjoy settings in this area. Incredible how small the world is today with social media –how easy to locate and connect with lost family and loved ones. This is a special story of three sisters, as Barbi (Patti’s younger sister) made a courageous choice and offered her daughter up for adoption. Twenty years later her daughter finds her mother and family thru Facebook and a friend request which created an answer to many prayers. An inspiring story as Barbi is writing her adoption reunion memoir-a must read!

Although it was short, it brought back the memory of when my husband learned he had a sister that was put up for adoption. We found her and it was amazing. So glad Patti's sister and her daughter finally reunited. Can't wait to read "And Then I Found You". I have read all of Patti Callahan Henry's other books and love them.
