How to handle family secrets

How to navigate family secrets will be discussed at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Lifetree Café, 3101 Campus Drive.

This program features the exclusive filmed story — shot live as events unfolded — of a woman who discovered a missing family member.

"A young woman gave her son up for adoption because she couldn't afford to care for him," said Lifetree representative Craig Cable. "Years later, her second child discovered there was an older sibling. We were there when they met for the first time."

The Lifetree event offers practical tips on handling a wide variety of family secrets.

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are available.

Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting.
