Foster Care Adoption Blog Tour

I am joining several other bloggers that have adopted through foster care or are in the process of adopting for a month-long blog tour. My turn on the tour is Friday, November 8. Don’t miss it!

You can enter to win a $60 Amazon gift card as a part of the blog tour. Look to the right of the page to find the sign up. By doing so, you will also be subscribing to receive my blog via email. Which is great! You won’t have to remember to come back here to read the new stories. It will conveniently be emailed straight to your inbox twice a week.

Pretty cool stuff!

I will share links to other bloggers articles via Facebook and Twitter on days they blog. So stay tuned to read stories about families all around the country who are on the journey.

Question – How are you caring for orphans?

I am a longtime Austinite. Married my beautiful wife over 25 years ago. Adopted our son September 2012. Currently a writer and loving it. Previous jobs and careers include project management, missionary, and pastor. I enjoy sports (both watching and playing), traveling, reading, digging in dirt and hanging with my friends and family.
