My Family, A Symphony: A Memoir of Global Adoption : Aaron is his parents' only biological child. His four internationally adopted siblings arrived with severe health problems and psychological wounds: Meredith suffered from birth defects and was never expected to walk; Jamie had cerebral palsy; Jordan had his first heart catheter when he was five; and Michelle had endured serious trauma as a child back in India. All five shared a close bond as children. However, by the time Aaron reached early adulthood, he felt distanced from his sisters and brother. In search of a way to reconnect with his family, Aaron traveled to 23 cities across the globe to trace his siblings' origins. He visited the orphanages where they had lived, met the people who had taken care of them, and immersed himself in the world of orphans around the globe, visiting slums in India, a village on the North Korean border, and a tribal settlement in an Ethiopian rainforest. My Family, A Symphony is Aaron's story. Poignant and engaging, it recounts the exploration that gave him new perspective on his family members and the exceptional circumstances that brought them together.
