November is National Adoption Month! Throughout the month I’ll feature famous folk who have been adopted! Today, in honor of my Fiftieth Birthday – the most famous adoptee of all!
Born Kal-el on the planet Krypton, he was rocketed to earth by his birth parents, Jor-el and Lara just before Krypton exploded into radioactive rubble.
Landing on earth in the mid-western United States, his ship was discovered by Jonathan and Martha Kent, who adopted the foundling and named him Clark, Martha’a maiden name.
Imbued with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men, Superman fights a never-ending battle for truth, justice and the American Way against the most ruthless of villains hell-bent on their quest for his destruction; including Lex Luthor, Brainiac, and Zak Snyder!
“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.
