About the Book
Pete and his wife Pat adopted six children, all born in the 1960's in California. Two were the product of black and white unions, two were Native Americans, one daughter was an Anglo child and one son was of mixed Hispanic and Germanic American heritage.
Over the years, the bonds of this close-knit family were forged by unconditional love and shared success in personal, athletic and academic achievement, and tested by racial prejudice, schizophrenia, drug addiction, congenital health issues, unwed pregnancy and sexual orientation.
In his moving memoir, Pete Likins shares the tale of the "New American Family," a story founded in love and respect, a story that speaks to every family in America.
