Who am I and how did I get here?

Posted Oct 04 2010 7:11pm
A couple days ago, I received a phone call from our adoption agency asking if we would be interested in attending a White House event having to do with adoption, The Adoption Tax Credit and the Affordable Care Act.

Umm, yes please!

I experienced a wee bit of intimidation after I received a call stating, "You will be receiving a phone call from the White House shortly. The number will likely show up as being private, so make sure you answer your phone."

Umm, yes sir!

Everyone I have dealt with has been more than nice ... and not intimidating at all. But, that doesn't mean I am not nervous as all get out ... because I am.

Kyle, Nika and I will be there. I will be giving a five minute speech about our adoption and what the tax credit has meant for our family.

The invitation from the White House ...
