In Our Local Newspaper.....

Our local newspaper the Minot Daily News featured our family's adoption journey today:


I think the writer, James Falcon, did a wonderful job writing the article. And, did you notice he used "people first" language? I was so excited that he did that!

Oh, and if you don't get the Minot Daily, this article is on the top of the FRONT PAGE right above an article about the State of the Union address. Talk about humbling......

Kevin and I want to say that we couldn't have done either adoption without the love and support of our friends, family, and community! So thank you to all of you!
