She has also found the time to continue recording and producing videos for her music. Today she unveils the video for the song “Red Boots” featuring her band and her two daughters, on the shore of Asbury Park. Of the song and video, Zara says, “My fantasy as a child was different. I was looking at the faces of women on the streets to see if I could pick out the face of the woman that gave me up for adoption. Red Boots is about childhood, loss of innocence, awakening into adulthood and a profound love of the relationship with a Mother and child.”

I began blogging in 2009 to try to find my original family and ended up becoming an author and activist for the adoption community. Two degrees in social work, two kids, multiple legislative campaigns, multiple published books, two collegiate teaching positions, a clinical practice, and advanced licensing later....I'm still at it and not giving up any time soon.
