“Sometimes out of the darkest situations the most beloved dreams are revealed and given to us.”
-Found, by Nikki Anne Schmutz
My book ‘Found’ will be available in the next few days on amazon.com. This story in all its entirety came to me in a dream. In the beginning, I wrote this book to be about a young girl trying to find her way out of a tough situation during the Christmas season. I published it in a local market more than a decade ago and found that everyone who read it saw the focus as something different than I had intended it to be. It became more. As I shared it, the more others brought to my attention that this story was really about the glorious gift of adoption. I have since met countless individuals and families who have shared their own adoption stories with me and I have grown to admire each and every one of them. I have a special place in my heart for the type of sacrifice and love shown in these situations. In releasing my book out into the world for the second time I hope that I will continue to hear these stories, to feel the happiness in the couples who adopt, and see the incredible and innate goodness in the people I meet all over.
