A few months ago, a good pal named Tao from The Adopted Ones, reached out to me with news that The Donaldson Adoption Institute was accepting blog pitches. I enjoy writing, and I feel strongly that voices of people of color in the adoption community are woefully underrepresented.
So, I decided to submit some ideas.
I’m delighted that the organization thought my voice was important and valuable. I’m also totally jazzed that the good folks there have decided to feature my story in honor of Black History Month.
Gosh, I feel special.
I’m happy to post a link to the first of a two-part series from me over on the Donaldson Adoption Institute blog. Be sure to stop by their Facebook page and hit them up on Twitter too!
HOW I GOT HERE
And yes, I am using my IRL name in addition to my pen name. 🙂
