Francia Gonzalez

I was born and raised in Venezuela but left when I was a teen. So far, I have lived in 4 different countries, and the U.S. became me and my family's permanent residence 9 years ago. I graduated college with honors (Summa Cumm Laude) in Northern Minnesota and I have been working as a digital editor and translator ever since. I have many hobbies, but the one that fills my heart the most is traveling with my dogs and the people I love.

‘6 years old, she showed up at my house in the pouring rain and blurted out, ‘They said they don’t want me anymore. You can have me.’: Mom of 6 shares emotional adoption journey

“I was 24 years old, single, living in a different country, and already had two children. But I knew in my gut Michaelle staying with me was the right thing. After a few months, she scooted over in her bed and said, ‘Look, mom, we have room for one more.’ I nearly choked, but I couldn’t deny I felt the same tug in my spirit. Little did I know, she had a sister.”
