Overview

From Gypsy to Jersey, chronicles how my parents came to adopt me from Romania and how, all these years later, I followed the trail to my birth mother and made the journey back to Romania to connect with my Roma (Gypsy) family and roots. It also explores the conditions and history of the country around the time of my birth and what I learned about the Roma culture.

I am telling my story in the hopes of inspiring other adoptees and giving them the courage to learn more about their past.
