My Adoption Story

I was Chosen. I am Wanted. I Grew in Their Hearts. I Have a Family. I am Adopted.

Now this is a story all about how my life got flipped-turned upside down…wait…that’s not my story… I am without a doubt one of the luckiest women in the world.

Why?

Chosen Family: Not born of blood or loin, but by choice. The choice to love. The choice to give love. The choice to be by someone’s side through thick and thin.

Chosen Family.

I was born in Santa Monica, to a teen mom, and put up for adoption. Before you sound the violin, know that my story only grows from that very moment on. I was adopted by two loving souls, who had been waiting patiently for 7 years for “their” baby to arrive and while I might not have arrived the traditional route, I did arrive one dream come true phone call: I was available for adoption.

At the age of 21, I got a call from a TV producer that my birth mother wanted to meet me – and be reunited on a TV talk show (Dream Makers with Richard Simmons). You can see the video of my experience here . Our relationship isn’t from a feel-good made for TV movie. The reality is, sometimes it just isn’t meant to be and while I am glad I got to connect with her, I am more grateful than anything that she gave me up for adoption. Without it, I would not be the woman I am today.

I’ve always wanted to hear the pitter patter of tiny feet, but the Universe had other plans for me and overcoming health related issues to having children. While once bitter, I realized it gave me a brand new chance to give hope and love to someone else. Just like my Chosen Family had done for me.

In 2011, I traveled to China to visit Maria’s Big House of Hope and fell in love with the work Show Hope does every day. They truly opened my eyes to the orphan crisis in the world: the myriad issues facing adoptees, adopted parents, the world of foster care, and so much more.

My passion besides the work I do, is ADOPTION.

Many dream of parenthood but the high cost of adoption prevents a lot from seeing their dream become a reality like my parents.

I am here as a voice for change and as an advocate for adoption.

If we work together, we can provide hope of a loving and happy “forever family” by supporting those who need it the most: the children.

Adoption gave me hope and my Chosen Family.

Will you give hope to another?
