Journalist Chronicles Search For Eritrean Birth Family

In 1974, Hannah Pool was adopted from an orphanage in Eritrea and raised in England by her adoptive white father.

When she was 19, Pool received a letter from a brother in Africa she never knew she had. That eventually compelled her to return to Eritrea, in an effort to track down her surviving blood relatives.

Pool chronicles that journey in the book, My Fathers' Daughter: A Story of Family and Belonging.
