Join host Pam Kroskie as she interviews author and adoptee Rhonda Noonan.

In a famiy memoir that reads like a detective novel, Rhonda Noonan recounts her thirty-year quest to find the truth of her own background-and what she uncovered will surprise readers as much as it did her.

Rhonda was born and adopted in Oklahoma, a state with closed adoption records. And, although she was cherished by her adoptive family, she-like so many adoptees- felt a burning desire to find and make contact with her birth parents.  Her three decade long search involved institutional stonewalling; the intervention of numberous judges, attorneys, and detectives; mountains of paperwork and court filings, and thousands of dollars in expenses. Tirelessly tracking down lead after lead and with the otherworldly help of a friend named Lillie-Rhonda finally unearthed her true history.
