Lucy Rivas Enriquez is a businesswoman who has worked in the field of human resources for more than 17 years. In that time she has learned a thing or two about people, diversity, and the human condition. Writing has always been a part of her life and now she weaves real-life experiences and lessons about diversity, acceptance, adoption and people into her children’s books. Lucy is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.

In her debut book, DJ’s Lullaby, Lucy shares the bedtime story she created when DJ joined her family. It is a heartwarming story of love for her adopted son. Lucy and her husband became foster parents when they learned there was a baby coming into the world who might need a home. They welcomed baby DJ into their lives when he was 10 days old. One year later,  DJ’s two older sisters joined him. Today, Lucy, her husband, and three (now) adopted children live in Illinois, where running around, being silly, and singing songs are an important part of daily life.

Lucy is an advocate for children in foster care and donates her proceeds to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. She was selected by The Rockford Register Star as one their “14 to Watch in 2014” for engagement in the community. Read all about it on the RRStar website or watch the video.
