Judith was adopted into a Caucasian Canadian family in the early 1980’s. Despite growing up in a loving family, Judith always desired to know more about her roots and wanted to find her birth family. She returned to Haiti in 2007 and embarked on this incredible life-changing journey. She has documented her experiences in this amazing and embracing film.  For more information on Judith, go to her website: https://judithcraigmorency.com
