Synopsis and Ordering Info: New Book A Wealth of Family

Alpha Multimedia, Inc. has produced a compelling new book that shows how to cross cultural barriers. A Wealth of Family: An Adopted Son's International Quest for Heritage, Reunion and Enrichment was written by me, Thomas Brooks. Order entry is open at Here is a synopsis:

This inspiring account of adoption, reunion, and heritage from Thomas Brooks provides a timely and provocative perspective on multicultural families and powerful insights on overcoming racism and poverty.

Brooks grew up as the only child of a struggling single mother in inner-city Pittsburgh. He was battling racial stereotypes at school and searching for a place among his peers. Then he was told at age eleven that he was adopted. He did not know it at the time, but Brooks had actually been born to a white biological mother who descended from Lithuanian Jews and a black Kenyan foreign student father.

Years after that stunning revelation, Brooks escaped the ghetto and traveled to search for his heritage. He found his biological mother in London with his previously unknown British siblings. He then located his biological father and extended family in Nairobi. His international search and the resulting reunions have profoundly affected three families in the United States, England, and Kenya.

I hope you find the book to be inspirational, educational and entertaining.

It will be interesting to see how this new book compares with The Color of Water by James McBride. The new book A Wealth of Family promises the additional drama of an international adoption/reunion story.
