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

Weekend Whimsy

This was written for Button by a very dear friend of mine, and fellow adoptive mother, who touches my life in all the best ways. Thank you, Candace!

The Wish

You were once an angel
All dressed in white
You were, at least,
Until that special night
When Mommy wished on the wishing star
the one that twinkles - all alone -
way out very far
Wishes were carried on whispers of wind
and you, little angel,
You listened in
Leaving your tiny wings behind
You drifted down to humankind
Touched tiny feet upon solid ground
To find the Mommy
The Mommy who made that whispering, wishing sound
And this is how WE came to be
Wishes really do come true
For You
For ME

--Candace Turner
