BOOKThe Roadto Cali

Embark on a poignant journey that will touch your heart in author Corinne Chateau’s inspirational memoir, “The Road to Cali”.

Chateau didn’t know if she’d make a good mother — she wasn’t even sure if she wanted to be a mother. Two miscarriages seemed to confirm, it was not destined to be. That is, until, she heard about a baby in the distant Republic of Georgia.

PLAYThe SunShines East

Based on true events, the play “The Sun Shines East” is an international adoption story set against the backdrop of political strife in the mid-1990s.

“A sensitively-written, beautifully acted, moving drama… a rich exploration of the theme of thwarted motherhood in two generations.”
