What Led Me To Adoption
Adoption has always had a special place in my heart. Call it “fate” or “destiny,” but I’ve known since I was 12 that my journey to motherhood would include adoption. There was a short period of time where I thought being “the best auntie ever” would be enough; however, life has taught me I have the heart to share with my children things that can only be experienced as a parent. I’m excited to be on that path today. Ten years ago, I volunteered as a Special Advocate (CASA) for kids in foster care and loved it. I advocated for those kids in front of judges and social workers. I later became a missionary in South Africa and Haiti, where I worked on family preservation initiatives.
