When I first began the adoption journey, more than 15 years ago, I resisted. But it wasn’t because I was against adoption. There was something else at play in the background of my life.
It always catches people off guard when I tell them this truth about myself. For as big of an advocate as I am today, it’s hard to believe this little tidbit about me. But, it’s true. Thankfully, my heart changed not long after we began the process, and I never looked back. I couldn’t have dreamed up a more beautiful storyline for our family. I’ve discovered there are many men who go through what I went through. And much like me, it’s not that they’re against adoption. In a 2-part series on our podcast, that’s what my co-host Matt McCarrick and I are discussing.
