A true adoption story.

This is a short story. It started with a series of blogs that chronicled an event that took place over 25 years. Some of it is a thing of fiction. But it’s all true. It’s a story worth sharing, worth hearing. And free to download.


I write books of fiction. This is not one of them.

Some minor details have been altered and names changed. At some point, you might think I’m making things up. Some of them I don’t believe and I saw it happen. This is a story about crisis. It’s about resolution and life prevailing. It’s about adoption.

This is not a step-by-step guide on how to turn lemons into lemonade. I’m not an expert in crisis management or adoption. There was plenty of the luck that made it all happen. This is just one story.

It happens to be true.
