“ I couldn’t put the book down. This is the story of a brave woman who skillfully chronicled her quest to be a mother and all the horrors and red tape she had to endure to become one. It will make you laugh and cry, and cherish your family all the more.” Rita Lakin, Screenwriter for Falcon Crest, Dynasty and Peyton Place, author of The Only Woman in the Room
What would you go through to achieve your dream? For me it was having a baby. After failing at what Mother Nature says comes naturally, my husband and I took advantage of everything modern medicine had to offer, again without results. Determined to be parents, we were left with the only remaining path - adoption. Though this seemed a more manageable route, adoption is far from predictable. This time our roller coaster ride faced unpredictable birth mothers, unreliable baby brokers, media competitions, mid-night crank calls, repeatedly changing government regulations and strangling red tape.
This is the heart-wrenching tale of our convoluted 10-year quest to have a family, from the serious, and sometimes hilarious side of fertility treatments, through two harrowing international adoptions. Our journey is fi lled with so many cliff hangers it reads more like a suspense tale than reality. As you come along for our wild ride you will be clutching this book praying we don’t get derailed again.
Our story of determination and tenacity will give hope to anyone facing a diffi cult life journey. Let my story motivate you to attain your dreams!
