Why I love Adoptions:

As many of you know, adoption is not just another practice area for me. I have always been involved professionally in children’s issues. After college, I worked in a home for troubled boys, and then in a WinShape Foster Home. Through law school and beyond, I continued to volunteer at the foster home and as a youth Sunday School Teacher and Chaperone at my church. When I moved to Dalton after law school, my first job was as a law clerk in our Superior Court. That year, I reviewed every adoption filed in Murray and Whitfield Counties. That is when I really learned Georgia Adoption Law. When I started representing clients in 2001, I began doing adoptions pretty regularly. But then these two young ladies entered not my professional life, but my personal life. My wife and I became acquainted with our daughters when they were teenagers. When we adopted our two daughters, we came to understand what it really means to be a forever family. And we have indeed been blessed by the richness and love that came from adding our two daughters to our family. Our boys have also benefited from having not one, but two big sisters to keep them in line. We are all growing together, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
