Hi! I'm Ashley. My wife and I adopted a 14 month old baby boy from Russia in November 2004. It was one of the greatest experiences of my life, but also a journey filled with many potholes and landmines. I am thrilled to be able to contribute to this blog and will help anyone looking to adopt in anyway that I can. There are so many babies and young children that need a good home and loving parents. When you visit an orphanage, it just gives you an appreciation for how lucky we are to live in the greatest country in the world!
