About Me


Adopted as an infant in 1963, it is no exaggeration to say that my entire life has been affected by adoption.  I  was raised in a family formed by birth and adoption.  I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Kurt, since 1983. He has made it his job to make sure all of my dreams come true, and they have.  We have four children who came to us through birth and adoption.  We have 2 daughters.  Devyn is a law student and Maddy is a college student.  Our two sons, Mikias and Jemberu, are both in elementary school.  All four of them make us proud and happy everyday.

Next to my family, adoption is the great passion of my life.  I am happy to have a place to write about adoption and people who care enough to read about it.  I do have other passions, they include reading, taking pictures (mostly of my kids), and the Red Sox (who don't always love me back).
