A True Story of Switched at Birth: The Little Dark One

After years of feeling like she never belonged, Shirley’s life was flipped upside down the day before her 43rd birthday. The Gillette, Wyoming woman had just received the DNA test results that would change her life forever. This test answered questions Shirley had wondered about since she was young. Up until this point, Shirley’s life had been a big question mark. And now, everything she thought she knew about herself wasn’t true. Shirley would eventually discover she was switched at birth in a Gillette, Wyoming hospital, a story so bizarre and rare in the United States.

Shirley will have copies of her book available and it is also featured in the An Unusual Journey book discussion series.
