Michelle Dettman, what her employees say about her

Sometimes when I think about what I do for a living, I am overwhelmed with such sweet gratefulness.  Who would have thought that a college girl who found herself in the predicament of being pregnant when she wasn’t married, would end up helping many other women through there own unplanned pregnancies?  The fact that hundreds of babies have been matched and placed in the most amazing families, with the help of our services, totally blows my mind at times.

I know that there is a living God, because it is He who has allowed an imperfect me, to help others through the miraculous journey of adoption.  I LOVE what I do in serving you.  They say that to work in this emotional field of ongoing peaks and valleys, otherwise known as ADOPTION,  that you are either crazy or called to it.  Certain days may be a bit nutty, but I will 100% own  being called to do this – any day and all day long.  I write, speak, dream, live this passion of adoption that the Lord Himself has gifted me with. If I can share in your journey in anyway, I consider myself blessed to do so.

My other passions are my faith in the Lord and my family. I am married to a pretty cute guy named David and we have four great kids. My babies came to me through marriage, birth and adoption. Eric, Arielle, Devony and Garrett – they are all mine.  My newest role is being Mimi. We now have our first grandchild and he is the cutest baby you have ever seen!

In my down time, you can most likely find me in my kitchen, out in my garden, tending to my animals or writing anywhere I can. I enjoy blogging about adoption, family and our new country lifestyle.  I cherish every single moment with my own family, but if I’m not with them then I’m probably out doing something adoption related.  One of my favorite places to be is in the labor and delivery room, welcoming babies into the world and witnessing the strength and depth of the love of both their birth and adoptive families.

Please feel free to contact me if you have questions.

And, if you don’t think the whole social media thing is silly,  I’d be thrilled if you wanted to follow me.  Hugs and Hope always!

Here is the “Why?” behind Michelle’s  calling to work in Adoption ~

From the experience of unplanned pregnancy in college to the experience of infertility in my marriage…  I understand all sides of adoption.  The Lord has been faithful in bringing my life full circle.
