Our Adoption Story

Update: We announced on 1/1/14 that we’ve begun the process to adopt again! We cannot wait to bring “W” home with us. You can follow that journey here.


I love sharing Mihret’s adoption story.

That being said, I haven’t been very good at it over the years. I’d like to see that change. I decided that the first step in correcting this is to create an eBook. It’s a labor of love and I hope it gives you just a little bit of insight about our story.
