Welcome! I’m Darin, an adoptive father of four kids and husband to an amazing wife.

This blog is where I’ve worked to find my voice as a writer, so you’ll see a variety of posts from family and adoption, to minimalism, to fictional short stories. For the foreseeable future you’ll find fictional short stories here.

More About Me

Jolene and I met in 1999 when we were 15 and 16-years-old and we’ve been happily married since 2004. We’ve been through a lot of crazy things: my law school years, infertility issues, roller coaster adoption processes, running a nonprofit, and being hijacked on an airplane.

In my free time I enjoy reading and helping people (see Awake & Alive for more).
