Shirley Muñoz Newson is a Gillette, Wyoming wife, mother, and grandmother who courageously wrote her memoir, The Little Dark One: A True Story of Switched at Birth to inspire others and show anything is possible with faith.

Shirley’s life was flipped upside down on April 7, 2001, one day before her 43rd birthday, when she received the DNA test results that would change her life forever. Everything she knew about herself wasn’t true.

Thanks to years of therapy, her unshakable faith in God, and the encouragement of her family, Shirley found the strength to tell her story and continue her own healing journey.
