A Wealth Of Family
Thomas Brooks

A Wealth of Family - Thomas BrooksPublished by Alpha Multimedia Inc

Price: UK £9.99 US$17.95

When Thomas Brooks was eleven years-old his single-parent mother told him who much she loved him and that he was adopted. The news shocked him for a while but he realised how much he was loved by his extensive family and put the matter to the back of his mind.

Years later with a brilliant education behind him and the blessing of his adoptive mother Joan, Thomas set out on a journey of discovery to find his biological parents. He had no idea that journey would take him around the world, from the United states all the way to Britain and Kenya. He also had no idea that his odyssey would profoundly change his life and the lives of three very culturally different families.

When Thomas took up the quest to find his biological parents he was surprised to find that his birth mother was a white American descended from Lithuanian Jews and his birth father
was from Kenya and had been a 26 year-old foreign student at the time of his birth. Thomas was in fact mixed-race.

A Wealth Of Family traces Thomas' life from his welcome into his adoptive parents home full circle to the meeting of his birth parents, extended birth family and the cross-cultural relationships that developed as a result of those reunions.

There is no doubt that Thomas Brooks has been extremely lucky in life, even being adopted has not had a negative effect. The sacrifices his adoptive mother made, often going without food so that he could eat, fueled his eagerness to do well in school and change the way that African American's were viewed by society. He returned the helping hand that others gave him by investing his spare time in the youth, helping to raise their self-esteem and empowered many to aspire to higher things.

They say that you create your own luck and if determination to succeed and a genuine interest in the well-being of others are the secrets to success in life then it is no wonder that this young man has led such a satisfying one.

A Wealth Of Family leaves you with a warm feeling towards Thomas and his family but more than that it leaves you with a sense of happiness and hope that somehow their love and understanding of one another will touch your life in a similar way.
