I was adopted at the age of three months to loving parents who were open about my adoption and fully supported me when I had adoption related questions. I went on to adopt and raise two infant sons of my own (now eleven and fourteen). In 2010, I designed and launched www.carriedinmyheart.com, a comprehensive online adoption resource dedicated to the well-being of the adopted family, including a vast collection of online resources and a community for peers across each leg of the adoption triad. I actively participate on the statewide Inter-Agency Committee on Adoption along with state family services resources and local adoption agencies and professionals. A member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, I am committed to using my experience to create engaging children's literature that parents can trust and share with their children to reinforce key adoption messages. My first childrn's book, Gotcha Day: A Carried In My Heart Adoption Story for Children was released August 29, 2012. I currently reside in Newark, Delaware with my husband and two sons.
