Proving Impossible Wrong

Portrait

When I was twelve, I wrote President Reagan a letter asking him to help me find my birth family.  Several weeks later, I received a letter from the White House.  The response was not what a young girl hoped to find inside. It stated they could not help due to closed adoption laws in my home state but directed me to a couple of organizations that may be able to offer assistance.

With no identifying information whatsoever about my birth family, I set out on a journey to find them.

Turns out, I didn’t need his help. All that I needed was already inside of me-sheer determination.
It took me another twenty-five more years before in 2008, the impossible became a reality.

Getting out of your own way

I’m happy that I finally have decided to ‘get out of my own way’ and move forward with my passion and purpose to connect  others through the power of story(we all have one).  The unleashing came in discovering Danny’s story of thriving and living life to the fullest in spite of  his MS diagnosis.  Dream Big, Dream Often has been a source of comfort, motivation and a good ole swift kick in the rear just when I needed it.
