Are You My Mommy? - Janet Louis Stephenson
Genre - Family Relationship, Adoption
Rating - PG13
4.8 (13 reviews)
Free until 1 April 2013
Two sisters passed around from family to family as toddlers, handled their situation in dramatically different ways. The older sister internalized the abandonment and rejection, while the younger sister eagerly embraced each new mother figure asking, "Are you my mommy?"
Thirty years after being adopted into a Forever Family, these sisters seek out their past. In the search to reconnect with their biological family, they easily locate and reunite with their birth father. Through this reunion, they start to learn of the difficult life their birth mother had lived, and might still be living.
Several clues point to Native American Heritage through their birth mother's family line. While intense curiosity drives them to know more of their ancestry, their desire to reunite with her is diminished by an uncertainty over whether she wants to be found or if she would rather leave the past behind her where she buried it over 30 years ago.
They seek answers to these questions:
  • Is their birth mother alive? 
  • How will the answer to this question affect them?
  • If found alive, will she accept or reject them? 
  • What secrets has she been guarding all these years?
  • Does she hold the keys to connect them to their tribal ancestry?
  • What will it take to heal the wounds for both mother and daughters?
The tale stretches beyond the exhaustive search for their mother, delving into complicated family relationships, spirituality, healing, and forgiveness.

As a first-generation Ethiopian immigrant, Sheba had lived in Charleston since she turned five years of age. She was Ethiopian by birth, but American by preference. She had worked hard, studied and sacrificed plenty to get where she was today, no easy feat for someone who had just celebrated her twenty-sixth birthday. According to her friends, Sheba was a beauty, though when she looked in the mirror, she saw inevitable flaws; her cheekbones were too pronounced, her mouth a little too wide, her nose with that perturbing slant to it. Still, she accepted compliments gratefully, especially from her roommate, Janelle. Janelle was the true beauty, Sheba thought, with dark ebony skin so smooth that she could be a walking ad for Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate.
