Incredible woman and story. Raped at 16, forced to give up daughter for adoption, and reunited after 77 years. Grandson became an astronaut and another a West Point grad. The book is beautiful. Amazing woman.

Please remove from breaking news. That was my fault. Didn’t mean to put it there.

It’s like God let her live long enough to see her story become a book and inspire people. RIP, Minka.
