Author Edward DiGangi. DiGangi’s story of adoption, search, discovery, and reunion is set against the glamorous ice skating spectaculars of the 1940s and details his late adulthood search for the identity of the woman who placed him for adoption at the time of his birth and the unexpected discoveries he made during the course of his journey. Di Gangi was adopted at birth in New York City. An only child, he made no effort to explore his heredity until, at age 69, a visit to a cemetery where members of his adoptive mother’s family were buried stirred his interest.
