My debut children’s book “Why is my hair curly?” is available for purchase on Amazon in Kindle and Audible formats. Click on the link to get your copy:

Our family is the subject of a feature-length documentary (working title Our Daughters) that explores what it means to be a modern American family through the lens of race and open adoption. It is expected to premiere in early 2021.

The indie filmmaker associated with the project is Chithra Jeyaram. I will update this page with news about the film as it happens. If you would like to know more or be involved with the film, reach out to Chithra via email at OurDaughtersDoc (at) gmail (dot) com.

If you would like to make a tax-deductible contribution towards the film, follow this link to support Our Daughters.
