lThe Search for Daniel

How transcendent are the bonds we share with family? That’s a question investigative genealogist Pamela Slaton has explored in depth. An adoptee herself, Slaton discovered she had an incredible gift for reuniting adoptees and their families after finding her own birth mother. Often relying on her intuition, Slaton has been able to solve even the most complicated adoption cases. Cases like that of Mysterious Ways reader Amanda Davis, whose last memory of her younger brother was from when she was seven and he was a few weeks old. Davis searched for him for two years on her own without any major leads—until Slaton tackled the case. Follow their journey below.
