Launching The Adoption Life

My Story…

The road to The Adoption Life started when we chose private adoption to grow our family. We needed to wait for a birth mother to choose us. We knew that took time and we prepared to wait. However, throughout our journeys, maintaining our resolve and preserving what was best for us in the fulfillment of our dreams became… a challenge.

Adoption is an extremely personal endeavor. At the very core lies ethical decisions that must be made to grow your family, and I understand the gravity of those choices. It can be a very isolating journey, and for us, even our family and closest friends simply did not "get it" - despite the best of intentions.

Today, six years after embarking on our adoption journey, and two successful open adoptions later, I chose to create The Adoption Life, because in hindsight, I wish I would have had an empowerment coach. And maybe you do too.

My Purpose…

  • to connect with you and support you on your journey.

  • to empower you to really live within the wait.

  • to provide resources that help you navigate various challenges that arise throughout the process.

  • to engage and share with prospective and current parents alike via the blog.

  • to provide tools to educate others about adoption.


10% of The Adoption Life proceeds are donated to the charity Together We Rise - an organization dedicated to making the foster care experience better for all 500,000 children going through it. I encourage you to take a look and become inspired by their mission and the incredible impact they are having on the youth in our system.

Thank you for joining me here!
