Chicken Soup for the Soul: Parenthood, Update

Have you ever had a moment when you knew something was meant to be, but all evidence pointed against its ever happening?

You might recall that I recently mentioned that I have another essay coming out in Chicken Soup for the Soul, the Parenthood edition.  I just received word that it will be in bookstores March 12, 2013, so look for it then.

My story is called “Our Sunshine,” and it features (with his approval) a story about the first day I met our son, Zackery.  Even as I write this I am welling up a bit — I knew from the moment I met him that he was meant to be our son.  The problem?  He was with another foster family.  It looked like my wish would never happen.  Would I ever have a son?  My son?

Well, you can read the essay for yourself, if you like, in March.  The books will be available at all of the major purchase points, both brick and mortar and virtual — Barnes and Noble, Amazon, and more.

As much as I adore writing fiction, I also like making people feel good and sharing the joys and struggles of my own life.  Chicken Soup “feeds” that writerly side of myself.

Have you ever had a moment when you knew something was meant to be, but you had lost faith in its ever happening, until unexpected events caused things to sway in your favor? Please share your thoughts with me here — I know many of you are readers of the series, and I’d like to hear your comments.
