S. Monique Smith-Person
I Am the Ancestor is a book written by a 46, 47 or 48-year-old woman who is the genesis, the beginning of her family. Known as Symbolie Monique Smith - sometimes - the author undoubtedly believes that she was abducted around the tender age of two and, as a result, has no accurate records of herself. After 15 years of endlessly searching for answers, Smith decided to tell her story before in an attempt to leave behind a true legacy for her four children. I Am the Ancestor is an inspirational account of the life of one living in a world with no links, no attachments and no real existence. Symbolie Monique Smith said, "This book will not only be a way for me to share with my children the life's identity of their mother, it will make them aware of our unidentifiable past while touching the soul of every possible role player!"
Author Monique Smith, or so she is called, recently discovered that the woman she has known to be her mother throughout her life is of no relation to her.
On her quest to find answers, Monique found no trace of her biological parents or possible siblings and no concrete leads from police officials.
