Patrick Ferraro’s Remarkable Adoption Story

Patrick Ferraro’s Remarkable Adoption Story October 22, 2011


Here is an article I wrote for this month’s St. Anthony Messenger about a man’s search over five years and three countries to find his birth mother and the nun who helped him. Magazine publishing is so interesting: you have to turn in articles six months in advance! But here it is and I get goose bumps every time I read it – and I wrote it! The story has a B.K. rating (bring Kleenex).

November is National Adoption Month in the USA.
