My Family Reunion Story

Little John and Me

In Spring 2015, after 20 years of total estrangement, my family of origin tracked me down. I thought I would never know them again in my lifetime. I thought I would never, ever go back to New York. Then I lived a miracle that showed me how wrong I was. This is that story.

There are second chances, there are once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, and then there are miracles. On seeing my family again after 20 years apart…and deciding to move home to New York to be with them once and for all.
