Jim and I first met each other in January 2000 when we were both working for a start-up Internet company in San Francisco. Nine years later we both moved to Palm Springs, Thomas from Los Angeles and Jim from Seattle, and were re-united once again! Three months into our relationship I received a letter in the mail from Child Protective Services (CPS) in northern Nevada that would forever change the course of our lives.
I wanted to create a blog to capture our journey of becoming the foster/adoptive parents to my nephew and niece, Ronald (age 4) and Angelica (age 3) — now known as Carter James (CJ) and Brooklyn. We wanted an easy and convenient way for family and friends, and others who might be interested, to keep up-to-date on our adventures.
