Georgia asks me to tell her how excited I was when her birthparents told us their baby was a girl the first time we met them.  She’ll say, “Yep.  I was a girl. And you and daddy wanted a...

Open Adoption Chose Us

Over the last three years I’ve talked a lot about our open adoption.  To anyone that asks, and really……to anyone that doesn’t.  Because I love it and I’m proud of it and it’s kind of like sharing my labor story–just without epidurals, and ice diapers (I’ve heard about these from my brave friends),...
