Order Your Copy of Damon's Book "Who Am I Really -  An Adoptee Memoir"

“Who Am I Really?” is a question many adoptees ask themselves when they realize they have another family of genetic relation. In his book, "Who Am I Really? - An Adoptee Memoir" Damon L. Davis shares his journey through life as an adoptee to becoming an adoptive parent himself. He explores his desire to find his birth family as sparked by the flood of emotions that accompanied the birth of his son, Seth — the first blood relative he had ever known. In his story, you’ll follow his introspection when considering a search for his birth family, while coping with the heartbreak of his adoptive mother’s mental illness. Within months of taking his post in the Obama Administration in 2009, Damon found his birth mother working only two blocks away and years later, his real birth father’s identity was revealed unexpectedly on AncestryDNA. You’ll be amazed by the coincidences that brought Damon face to face with his birth mother in a tearful, yet joyous, reunion. And your heart will be warmed by the acceptance of his birth father who didn’t even Who Am I Really: An Adoptee Memoirknow he existed.
