Follow this family’s journey as they learn how to reclaim their identity and power. Elaine is a young mother who loses her five children to her abusive husband when he takes them and vanishes. Elaine’s middle child, Karina, endures a tumultuous childhood in her father’s company. Then, in her adult life, Karina’s three children are taken away by social services and she loses custody. Though separated, both Elaine and Karina share a tragic life of guilt and shame. Karina’s children spend their childhood between the doors of the orphanage and foster homes. The siblings are cut off from any contact with each other. At a young age, Karina’s middle child Eugenea has a burning desire to find her family and reunite with them so she can reclaim her identity and feel she is part of a family. As a mother of four, Eugenea is determined to overcome the odds of losing her children like her mother and grandmother did before her. Meanwhile, she pursues her search for her adoptive brother and has no leads. She must unlock the past and use her own techniques to succeed in her quest to reunite her family. Eugenea’s story teaches the positive ways to search, locate, and reunite when all hope seems lost. After forty years of separation from her brother, Eugenea shares how she reunited with her lost family members.

About the Author:

Eugenea Couture is a mother of four and a native of Vancouver, B.C. Canada. At age four, she was forced into the foster care system in southern Alberta. As an adult, she moved back to the west coast where she settled down to raise her children and reunite with her biological family so they could mend their broken relationships. Terrified by the possibility of history repeating, Eugenea wanted to be a stay-at-home mother so she could focus on her children’s upbringing. It has been her life-long passion to help others find their families and to share her remarkable journey.
