Gabrielle's Life and Writings

Gabrielle Lawson, writer of Fanfiction. I will use this space to keep a journal about my writing, the progress I'm making, stories I'm working on, writer's blocks I'm having, our adoption process and progress and just life in general.

Location: Missouri, United States

I'm multifaceted and highly educated. I have a BA in History and an MA in Museum Studies. But I couldn't make a living in a museum, so my hobby--computers--became my living. I'm now a charter member Microsoft Certified Desktop Support Technician. I aspire to be a professional writer and/or poet. I am a Christian and have been living by His grace for the last four years or so, despite the MegaStress and now the GigaStress. He keeps me going, and displays His glory still, in my life.

We've started our adoption!!!!

We did it. We started. We sent our application to WACAP to be our agency and are using Adoption & Beyond as our home study agency. We are now in the process of filling out a bunch of paperwork. We'll have a class to go to at the end of the month, a home visit a little later, lots of reading along the way and oh, fundraising.

We need help affording adoption so if you're reading this, I would like to ask you to help us. You can donate to us through our adoption website or you can go to Current and do a little shopping. You'll need to click the Start Shopping Now button in the lower left. Then, after you've picked a few things for your shopping cart, you'll be asked which organization you are shopping to help raise funds for:

State: Missouri
Organization: Robert and Gabrielle Person

We really would appreciate any help we can get and will have more fundraisers as time goes on.

You can check our webpage for our progress and also the ticker I keep on just about all my webpages. Our goal is $40,000! Yep, that's about what it takes to get a child home from Russia. The two trips there are included in that total. We will also apply for grants and low- or no-interest loans so hopefully we'll get all the money we need by the time we need it.

Please consider helping us out. We have a long way to go and there's a little girl sitting in an orphanage in Russia waiting for us to come and be her mommy and daddy.

Thank you,
