I met my wife, Tiffany almost a decade ago now. We were both rounding into our late 30's, and we were both content at that point in our lives to go it alone. Then we found each other, and my perspective changed. I knew on our first date that she was the one for me, and I had never experienced that feeling before.
Tiffany was born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia. She has more degrees than I do, but the one I can remember is a Doctorate in Industrial Psychology. She's beautiful, kind, driven and has a very successful career going. Like me, the only thing that was really hanging over her head for years was our difficulty having children.
She was the driving force behind our efforts in Kyiv. She had the idea. She found the agency. She planned the trips. She handled her pseudo-hostage situation in the maternity hospital with an amazing level of aplomb.
She's also one of the inspirations for me telling this story to the world, both here and with the book that's coming soon.
