Join us as host Pam Kroskie interviews Susan Bennett about her memoir "Late Discoveries"- an adoptees quest for truth.

Susan was forty-three years old before she ordered a DNA test and learned the truth that she had long suspected: that she was adopted. By this time, the woman she had always called her mother, who had kept the adoption a secret, was dying, so Susan never got to talk with her directly on this important matter of identity. Then came the long, involved search for her half-siblings and her biological family roots, a roller-coaster of emotions that uncovered secret after secret, revealing truth after truth. The most important truth Susan learned from her quest was that she had been wanted and loved by both her mothers.
