Author Dorene Johnson, a resident of Kansas City, will be available to sign copies of her book, “A Missing Piece of the Pie,” at 1 p.m. Saturday, June 21 at Hastings Entertainment, 723 N. Charles St., in Warrensburg.
Being raised in a home with assuring parents and a solid foundation didn’t ease the desire Dorene had to find out about her biological parents. Who were they? What did they do? Where did they live? Did they ever think about finding the child they had given up? Did they ever wonder about their daughter’s life and the obstacles that faced her? Did they ever wonder if the child wanted to know about them too? Her adopted family’s unconditional love and acceptance gave her the courage to dig into her past and answer the questions that she has struggled with for so long.
Take the journey with Johnson as she finds “A Missing Piece of the Pie: Finding Myself after Adoption.”
