National Adoption Month: spotlight on Dave Thomas!

November is National Adoption Month! Throughout the month I’ll feature famous folk who have been adopted! Check the Abby’s Road Facebook page for more adoptees – this blog will host some of the more interesting and famous!


We start with probably the most famous: Dave Thomas, founder of Wendy’s! He was adopted at 6 weeks by Rex and Auleva Thomas. He became an adoption advocate. To celebrate I think I’ll have one of their yummy salads!


More on Dave Thomas from Wikipedia:


“Abby’s Road, the Long and Winding Road to Adoption and how Facebook, Aquaman and Theodore Roosevelt Helped” leads a couple through their days of infertility treatments and adoption. It is told with gentle (and sometimes not-so-gentle) humor from the perspective of a nerdy father and his loving and understanding wife.

Join Mike and Esther as they go through IUIs and IFVs, as they search for an adoption agency, are selected by a birth mother, prepare their house, prepare their family, prepare themselves and wait for their daughter to be born a thousand miles from home.
