If you're interested in learning where my passion for adoption comes from, I encourage you to read my writings for Holt International. Holt is considered the flagship international adoption agency because the founder began adoptions after the Korean War. I have a lot of personal ties to Holt because the agency has done so much for my family.
Anyway, here's an excerpt:
I am so thrilled to be writing for Holt’s blog. It’s funny because I write for a living, but when I was given the opportunity to write for Holt, I called up my family as if I had won a major journalism award. It’s that exciting, people!
I like to think of Holt as the “mothership.” Over the last three decades, a number of people from Holt made a tremendous impact on my life. I’m sure many of them don’t even know it. And, truthfully, I couldn’t remember all of their names anyway. But, what I do know is that without Holt, I would not be where I am today. And, as an adoptee, I’m sure many of you can relate.
Some dedicated Holt blog readers may know me as Michelle Sherwood...
