Thread of Life: An Adoption Story is the true story of an adopted child’s journey to find his birth parents. The adoption process can often leave many unanswered questions for the adoptee, the adopted parents, and even the eventual offspring of an adopted child. It has been said that adoption is more like a marriage than a birth, with two or more individuals, each with their own unique mix of needs, patterns, and genetic history, coming together with love, hope, and commitment for a future together. You become a family not because you share the same genes but because you share love for each other.

Mike Doiron’s original intent was to try to fill in some of the gaps—genealogically, medically, and perhaps even mentally—as he began his adult life following university. The endeavor took him down a path of self-discovery and adventure. When he began to chronicle what he had learned, he decided that he wanted to share his findings with others. For him, Thread of Life is not meant to be a guidebook for families of adoption, but rather a documented true story sharing personal insights from his own journey to answer the questions many adopted children ponder as they become adults.
