AUTHOR: Dawnis Edge
Although born and raised in Chicago, I now reside in Ohio with my amazing husband, Darryl. I am the mother of three wonderful children, DJ, Daniel and D’Sha, and have an awesome daughter-in-love, Erica. The joys of my life are my three granddaughters, Leah, Imani, and Chloe. In them, I get to see my children as kids all over again!
I am also an adoptive parent. My husband and I wanted the pleasure of raising a daughter and we got that opportunity with our youngest. She has been a joy! Raising her did come with challenges that you may not have with birth children. We have really seen the nature versus nurture struggle come into play in her life. We also have dealt with the challenges of helping her figure out where her “two families” fit into her life. It has been a roller coaster ride, but we wouldn’t trade it for anything! To God be the glory!
By profession, I am a speech-language pathologist and I work with children in an elementary school setting. So much can be accomplished through the reading of a book!
