In her words:
Women, I wrote this book for you!
When I was a child, I often shopped at the Sevierville, Tennessee, Kmart department store with my mother. During each visit, I listened intently for an East Tennessee twang to broadcast over the loud speaker and say "Attention Kmart shoppers, the blue light special is...." When I heard those messages, I rushed to the pulsing blue light to see what helpful piece of merchandise was marked down and up for grabs.

I am a teacher and a writer. More importantly, I am a middle-aged married mother of two children—one biological and one adopted. Folks, that is not as simple as it sounds. I went through the gauntlet to add a second child to my family, and I know many of you can relate. I wrote this book for you.

So, I would like to broadcast in my own East Tennessee twang, "Attention Amazon.com shoppers! If you are in any way associated with the heartbreak of infertility or the 'beautiful burdensome blessing' of adoption, my book, The Eye of Adoption, may help you."

I know that most author pages are written in third person, but that does not match my down-to-earth personality, nor does it match the tone of my book. I want to talk directly to readers because I want your to clearly understand my serious goals for the book as the following:

  • To inspire and encourage infertile or waiting adoptive families.

  • To enlighten birthparents with a story from an adoptive parent's point of view.

  • To educate the extended families and friends of adoptive parents and birthparents.

  • To serve adoption agencies, social workers, churches, and ob/gyns as they care for and minister to those affected by unplanned pregnancies, infertility, and/or adoption.

  • To hopefully entertain readers with anecdotal commentary, commiseration, and comic relief.
