Genre: Christian, Non Fiction

Book Summary

Abandoned But Not Forgotten is the powerful memoir of Dana Priyanka Hammond, who as a four-year-old child was abandoned in a train station in India. Through her life, she has faced many trials and tribulations--abandonment, abuse, assault, and being part of the broken foster care and adoption system in America. Yet, she has overcome all of these obstacles stacked against her to become a strong woman, thriving today.


Dana's story of being abducted around the age of 4 from a train station in India, living in an orphanage, then coming to the US - only to deal with awful adoptive families - to becoming a voice for the voiceless is gripping, shocking, and inspiring.

Her determination to find her birth parents is relentless, and this book is the first step to doing just that.

After reading her stories, you'll be just as shocked as I was to know this behavior is not only still continuing, but is also highly lucrative.

The bottom line: if she can make it through her past, you can get through whatever is troubling you.

I highly recommend this book.

About the Author

I’m an author and a writer who’s on a mission to share the story that starts in a loving home somewhere in India. I had about four years to get to know my family before I was abducted—Snatched and hidden in a rice sack. Scared and scared. Sold into child trafficking. Rescued by a police officer. Adopted in America. Abused, now healing, and hope-filled!

That is a snippet of the journey that I will retrace, “GET YOUR DAILY DOSE!” as I seek to put the pieces of me back together. I started blogging to walk you through my experiences, which are better shared than locked in my mind and emotions. Thank you for walking with me! Your company lets me know that I am not alone in raising awareness to help prevent, or at least, help those victimized by child trafficking, forgotten in orphanages, living in shelters, lost in foster home systems, and abused in adoptions.

The main reason why I started this journey publicly and share my story openly is in hope of returning to the beginning of my life before the rice sack and the loss of my birth family and identity. I want to find them. Look them in the eyes and see my reflection. I want to journey to India to find my birth family before the last spark of my joyful beginnings burn out, and I have to make peace with living the rest of my life with this mystery.
