Join Host Pam Kroskie and guest Rhonda Churchill on November 9th @ 2pm EST-
Renae Irene Gafford was given up for adoption in 1956. She was adopted by Jim and Jeanlee Noonan and was raised in the wheat lands of north central Oklahoma, as Rhonda Noonan. In 1980, she began a quest to find her biological grandfather, who, she was told, had cared about her. The journey was 30 years long but ultimately rewarding, as she found her birth mother and the identity of her birth father. Her beloved grandfather was none other than Winston Churchill. In 2013, Rhonda told the story of her search in “The Fifth and Final Name, Memoir of An American Churchill,” a finalist for the Oklahoma Center for The Book Award. In 2015, she legally changed her name to Rhonda Churchill. Rhonda is a licensed professional counselor and has worked with adoptees and their families for over 35 years. She shares her story with others to provide inspiration and courage to those searching and to highlight the spiritual connectedness we share with family who has gone before us.
