We designed this site in order to keep in touch with friends and family who are far away and in order to communicate with other adoptive families from around the world.

When we first started researching this wonderful way to become a family we read everything we could get our hands on. Even though there are a lot of great books out there, nothing was as informative or touching as the blogs we found by adoptees, biological parents, and adoptive families. So we are writing this blog now in hopes of returning the favor. We hope that if you are dear to us you will enjoy keeping up with our adventures. If you are someone out there involved in a part of the adoption triad we hope you will find information and comfort here and provide us with some of your own!

If you would like to get in touch with us we can be reached at:
Feel free to stop by anytime. We're happy to share our family story.

Take care,
Brian and Rosemary

Exciting stuff

Again, we are not going to talk about how we voted on this blog, because thats not what we are doing here.  However, I am excited to say this:  As the future mother of a non-white baby I am thrilled to be able to tell my child that a non-white person can hold the highest office in the land.  

I also think it is a great legacy for mixed race families that our President Elect, Barack Obama, hails from an interracial family.  He had grandparents, who he dearly loved, who were not the same race as him.  When strangers saw him with his mother they did not assume that they shared the same cultural heritage.  Yet, he loves his family and has become a strong, independent man who has achieved huge things in his young life.  

Regardless of all political structures, I think it is exciting that America has FINALLY elected a minority and I think it is especially exciting that he speaks positively about his mixed race family.

I am so glad to find another mom who gets it. Really I am, especially another Holt Mom.
