Dr. Susan Mossman Riva was adopted in Omaha, Nebraska in 1963. In 1995, she sought the help of the Nebraska Children’s Home to find her birthmother, leading to the discovery of her birth family. Miraculously, her search and reunion coincided with her biological sister’s search. The divine timing of their reunion happened months before their biological, maternal grandmother died of cancer.
Susan connects the phases of her life in a story mandala connecting adoption, reunion, and belonging. This is a miraculous story about reunion and divine timing.
Dr. Mossman’s social science background provides an explanatory framework, sharing insights into transformational processes in relation to autoethnographic writing.
