I Must Have Wandered: An Adopted Air Force Daughter Recalls by Mary Ellen Gambutti

I Must Have Wandered is a vivid hybrid memoir told through lyrical prose, letters, fragments, and photos of an infant relinquished at birth in post-World War11 South Carolina, and her closed adoption by native New Yorkers stationed in the state. The author reflects on the primal loss, and the separations of a transient military lifestyle. Follow her through her coming of age in the turbulent 60s, as she defines and defies the barriers to her truth set by sealed birth records, a culture of secrecy, and religious fervency. This is the touching story of how a woman’s genetic heritage was scattered, then gathered in discovery and reunion, and her quest for identity. Includes resources.
