Michelle Thorne (of the USA, not UK, to be clear…sorry for the confusion!)
Beloved: by God
Wife: to social butterfly, artist Matthew
Mommy: to stunningly gorgeous and wicked smart Cadence & budding comedian and gentle giant Deacon
Birthmom: to a very handsome guy I call Dylan in public because his privacy and story are sacred and they are his to share, not mine
Former Pregnancy Counselor: at Bethany Christian Services
Overseas Home Study Specialist – Asia: at Children’s House International
Adoption Informant: there is no photoshop on this picture, which makes it real and beautiful the way it is
Other fun facts: I suffer from being a workaholic and habitually sticking my foot in my mouth. I have not-so-secret author crushes on Donald Miller, Brennan Manning, and Brene Brown, though in my dreams I am a “real” author of smart fiction and spend my days in a pub in Europe describing my secret friends in detail. My favorite sport is Major League Baseball, but I will go hoarse yelling for the Oklahoma Sooners during football season. I have never met a stranger and have a knack for making others comfortable in uncomfortable situations. Above all, I love to laugh and make people laugh, and you may as well know that I am funnier when I stand up, which I am not doing as I type this. Apologies in advance!
Michelle Thorne lives in Qingdao, China with her husband Matthew and their two adorable children.
