Abandoned in Paris – a book by my father

It has been 13, almost 14 years now since I found out that I had another sister.  I grew up with a sister that was 2 years younger than I.  In 2003 I found out that I had an older sister that was born, raised, and currently living in France.  Seriously.  My dad called my sister (that I grew up with) and I and asked if we could have a family meeting; he wanted to tell us something.  It was something he didn’t want to tell us over the phone.  Both Chalan (my sister) and I figured that they were going to tell us either mom or dad had some bad medical condition.  Nope.  Just an extra sister. 🙂  What a relief.

My dad is awesome and he is my hero.  He gave up so many things so that my sister and I could have things when we were little.  They didn’t always have enough money for bills, but they made things work.  Dad is a master plumber and has been for over 50 years now.  He is 70 and still working as a plumber every day.

Long story short, he recently wrote a book about his daughter (Aude) finding him.  This book is called “Abandoned in Paris”.  He received a letter in the mail in 2003 and it was from the daughter whom with he had never met or spoken with.  If you are interested you can purchase the book on Amazon as well as CreateSpace.
