Actress Corinne Chateau knew that if she was going to have a baby, she had better hurry up—but something kept stopping her. Was it the fear of giving up a life of theatre and artistic freedom? Or was it something even deeper, something she didn’t know was there? This is the story of one woman’s journey as she confronts the scars of her childhood to open her life to a new member of her family and become a mother herself.

But when the country’s president declared a sudden moratorium on foreign adoptions, Corinne’s dream was almost shattered. Now, she’ll share with your listeners the thrilling story of the battle to bring baby Cali home, a story that’s both inspirational and emotional. Whether or not your listeners are parents, they will be engrossed by Corinne’s tale of determination and, ultimately, triumph.
