In Operation Pedro Pan, Yvonne M. Conde has tracked down hundreds of these children in order to tell their diverse stories -their uplifting, poignant, and sometimes tragic experiences in American foster homes and orphanages, and, for some, their long-awaited, awkward and delicate reunification with their parents. Because Conde herself was a Pedro Pan child, others have opened up to her like never before to share their feelings about this painful time in their lives. Today, these children and their families struggle to heal the emotional scars of their long separation.
