Carried in Our Hearts

May 8, 2013


Tonight I had the opportunity to attend a book launch party for “Carried in Our Hearts,” by Dr. Jane Aronson, with essays by many ┬áparents and children who have experienced first hand, the joys and traumas of creating a new family through adoption.

I am honored to have my story, originally posted here, be a part of this beautiful collection.

If you are seeking for a last minute Mother’s Day gift, take a look at this book, sure to melt the heart of any Mom, regardless of how her family was formed.

There was not a dry eye in the room, as people read from the book, and recounted their international adoption experiences.

Dr.Aronson, who is not only a highly acclaimed pediatrician specializing in international medicine, but also the founder of World Wide Orphan’s Foundation, has taken on the role of mentor, fairy godmother and stork, to many families across the world. Her goal through WWO is to transform the lives of orphaned children and help them to become healthy, independent, productive members of their communities and the world.

Won’t you join me in celebrating the heartwarming stories of families who were formed not by blood, but by love this Mother’s Day?
