Listen to the interview here

After interviewing you on We Love Girl Talk, blog talk radio, I was inspired to begin a blog. I have tried blogging before, and was somewhat intimidated by it. Speaking with you and hearing about your success in ministering to so many, I decided to blog again. My heart is to minister and I am so excited about this book I am writing that addresses parenting tools for adopted children. I want other families who have adopted to be blessed by this book and the blog. It will be fun connecting with a group of people who have adoption in common. Thank you again for being such an inspiration to so many!
