Benjamin Chambers and Lisa Bouler Daniels

Lisa Bouler Daniels grew up knowing she was adopted; and as an adult, she began searching for her birth family.

By the time she found them, both her birth mother and her adoptive mother had passed away. But she did track down her biological brother: Benjamin Chambers.

And the story of her adoption unearthed a family secret that had been kept quiet for decades.
