Leah was adopted from the Philippines 29 years ago. It’s been 29 years  of love and joy matched by anger, depression and fear. This site is dedicated to her story, but it’s her parents’ story too. It’s also her brother’s story and his family’s story–because adoption affects everyone.

In the first hours

The site started as a blog for my wife, our daughter and me to write about our adoption experiences as a family. After a bumpy start, we let other priorities capture our interest and stopped posting. My intention, as the adoptive father, is to resume the blog and also use the site to post some chapters from an in-progress memoir I am writing about our family’s adoption experiences.

I hope you find something meaningful in either the blog or the chapter posts, and I would be happy to hear from you.
