I’m sure most of you have heard of the amazing series Faces of ALI series that Jjiraffe started in response to the sensationalized stories highlighted in wide-read news giants like the New York Times. If you have not, you should definitely check it out ASAP.
I have to admit, I never thought I’d be profiled for the series, even when Jjiraffe asked me if it would be okay for her to write about me. I didn’t think my story was compelling enough to be included. But then I remembered that “real, every day stories” of adoption, loss and infertility are what Faces of ALI is all about, and I am probably a horrible barometer in measuring the interest my story would hold for someone else.
Thank you, my friend, for including me in this incredible project, for seeing in my story that which I couldn’t see for myself.
Thank you for this amazing gift. I truly am honored.
