Why would she save this? “We thought you might want to find her one day. She sent a message to you; she said to tell you that she loves you very much, and she didn’t want to leave you.”
Growing up with the broiling heat and frequently unpredictable tropical weather of Louisiana was the easy part; not knowing who she was or where she came from was the hard part. In Gypsy Phoenix, author Kimberly Thompson recalls her life-to-date through pain, tears, and ultimate joy. Relinquished at birth, Kimberly lived life into her thirties always lacking what she truly wished for—answers about her past. But afraid of hurting her adoptive parents, she waits thirty-two years before the embers that have been smoldering within ignite, threatening to devour her completely.
Watch Kimberly’s story unfold as she discovers unconditional love and forgiveness, which finally offer the freedom to take flight like a Gypsy Phoenix. Having spent many years in ignorance of her heritage, and without the gospel of truth to guide her life, she has finally come full circle to the revelation of who she is and where she began. Whether you have experienced adoption personally or just someone you know, this powerful story will speak to the lost and encourage those who have questions to continue seeking answers.
Kimberly Thompson is a certified bridge inspector and serves her church in several capacities. She is passionate about gardening, farm animals, ministry to others through service, and, most recently, locating her biological family. Kim and her husband, Keith, currently reside in Baskin, Louisiana, with their son, Michael.
