Heartwarming and Inspirational Story Shows the Power of Love

  • A Wealth of Family, the inspiring account of adoption, reunion, and family heritage from Thomas Brooks, provides a timely and provocative perspective on multicultural families and powerful insights on overcoming racism and poverty.
  • Brooks grew up as the only child of a struggling single mother in inner-city Pittsburgh. He was battling racial stereotypes at school and searching for a place among his peers. Then he was told at age eleven that he was adopted. Brooks had actually been born to a white biological mother who descended from Lithuanian Jews and a black Kenyan foreign student father.
  • Years after that stunning revelation, Brooks escaped the ghetto and traveled to search for his heritage.
  • He found his biological mother in London with his previously unknown British siblings. He then located his biological father and extended family in Nairobi. 
  • His international search and the resulting reunions have profoundly affected three families in the United States, England, and Kenya.
