If you are like me, you enjoy a good story. Here is mine.
Once upon a time, I was a kid. I loved to read and write. I hoped to one day write a book. Well here’s to turning hope into action. My first book is here!!! It is a picture book about the love of a mother for her adopted child. This is the story I told my son every night when he first came home to us. Fast forward three years and I have finally put it to paper. Among my many blessings is having an artist in the family. Thanks to my sister M.A. Moisa (the aforementioned artist) my story has come to life with beautifully created illustrations. We are busy putting the final touches on our second book, Simon the Dragon. Simon is a tender story about a dragon who learns that being different can be lucky.
Our family has also been blessed with the addition of DJ’s sisters. My three adopted children are at the heart of everything I do. Their stories and adventures are woven into all my books in some fashion. My books are aimed at helping children deal with acceptance, differences, adoption, and many other feelings foster and adopted children experience.
Helping children find their “Forever Families” has become a passion of mine. I am a strong supporter of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption awards grants to public and private adoption agencies to hire adoption professionals who implement proactive, child-focused recruitment programs targeted exclusively on moving America’s longest-waiting children from foster care into adoptive families. Proceeds from my children’s books will go to this very worthwhile organization.
