Holy Moses! Today’s National Adoption Month Spotlight is …

November is National Adoption Month! Throughout the month I’ll feature famous folk who have been adopted!  I got some grief for featuring a fictious character yesterday, so from now on – no more fictitious characters based on mythical tropes! Today’s spotlight: MOSES!

From Wikipedia: Moses’ Hebrew mother hid him when the Pharaoh ordered all newborn Hebrew boys to be killed because of a prophecy of a messianic deliverer among the Hebrew slaves. He was put in a basket and floated down the Nile. The Pharaoh’s sister found the basket and adopted the child who grew up with the Egyptian royal family to become Charlton Heston.

“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.
