Where Did I Come From?

By Michael Schatz

JDC International Centre for Community Development, 2006

The author, a man who was adopted by a Jewish family immediately after his birth, decides to search for his biological parents. He explains how even as a child, his adoption was something that he was aware of and completely at ease with. However, at the age of 32 and after having a child of his own, he begins to wonder where his genes came from, along with how religious his biological parents were. After finding and meeting his biological parents, he explains that his search was not to find his 'real' family, it was simply to understand where he came from.
