When my husband and I began our adoption journey over twenty years ago, we had no idea of what was in store for us. The myth of adoption had us hooked and after the pain and isolation of infertility, we were willing to give it a try. The journey took us to an orphanage in Mexico where we met a precocious six-year-old girl. The journal of our experience resulted in my memoir, Love at the Border, An Adoption Adventure. Now I am writing children’s books with a mission to enhance communications between parents and children so that all blended families thrive!

My memoir began with a trip to Mexico. Now the L.I.F.E.* Adventures Series of children's books is a collection of stories about one family's adoption journey.
