Nothing prepared her for the story to unfold.
She sallied forth knowing very little, not even
what questions to ask, just that she needed
proof of her own identity. The journey
stretched her beyond what she thought possible
and she received not only what she sought, but more—
a house to call her own, not far from the city
where her real parents grew up. She thought
she wouldn’t win, but with God’s help, she did.
