I think that’s very important to me, to show a lot of parents out there looking to give kids homes, that we are great people that we want to do great things but we just need a home to do that in. If you’re a loving, caring mother or father, looking for a child, adoption is an incredible option. I’m definitely testament to that. There’s going to be a few bad adoptions, but I have to believe most of them are great and these kids will turn out to be phenomenal people and very productive people in society.
…it is amazing what’ll happen in a lifetime. I started life as this kid from a mom that wanted to give her son a great life, to being a son of two mothers, I guess – and getting a medal.
