My name is Melissa. I am married to Anthony and bonus mother to Asata. There is a great deal more I want you to know about me. And I’ll be sure to get there. But more than anything, I want you to know that I have a heart for being a mother. Through years of infertility and loss, Anthony and I are now on the greatest journey of our lives. And we want you here with us, each step of the way.
Adoption has been my calling for years. I am finally at the point of being brave enough and faithful enough to step out into God’s grace and fulfill this calling. Now that the horse is out of the barn, so to speak, there is no going back.
Family, old friends and new friends alike, this blog is for you to follow our journey into parenthood. But for my future son or daughter, this blog is a glimpse of how you came to be a part of our lives. This is my heart’s journey into motherhood, with you as my coveted destination. I love you already. Let’s get started together.
