In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," we celebrate anchor Michaela Pereira as a source of inspiration for adopted children everywhere.
In the March issue of "Essence Magazine," Pereira writes about being adopted and wondering about her birth parents.
"I was especially curious about my father," she says. "So much of who I am on the outside – my skin color, eye color, and hair – is because of him."
Pereira shared her story on "New Day" Monday and said though her birth father eventually rejected having a relationship with her, the experience brought her to meet a sister she didn't know she had.
"I've also learned that there's a silver lining in very, very, dark clouds. I found my birth sister, Marnie."
