This is online home of Scott and Annie McClellan. We use this blog to keep you posted on our comings and goings, activities, and high jinks. We started blogging during our adoption journey, and we completed the adoption process December 18, 2008. But that’s not the end of the story. We are still on the adoption journey as Elise discovers and tries to understand her story and deal with a little sister, Maggie (born May 11, 2011). We now have screaming times two just for the pure joy of Maggie and Elise hearing their voices. It’s never a dull moment and rarely a quiet one.
SCOTT: I’m a writer, editor, conference director, occasional speaker, family man, and fellow of infinite jest. Whatever free time I have belongs to my family, writing, reading, various side projects, whatever I can help you with, making poor dietary decisions, and Tapestry— the adoption and foster care ministry at Irving Bible Church.
In March 2013, my first book will hit the physical and digital shelves. It’s called Tell Me a Story: Finding God (and Ourselves) Through Narrative, and I’m excited to share it with you. I’ll try to keep this page updated (along with the rest of the site) with the latest news about the book, but you can also subscribe to my mailing list to make sure you don’t miss anything.
ANNIE: After teaching Deaf Ed for eight years, I now work as a stay-at-home wife and mom. My husband and I serve on the Tapestry Adoption & Foster Care Ministry leadership team, and in 2011, I started assisting Tapestry with their online communications. I blog at tapestryministry.org/blog and here, mcclellantown.com. Thanks to my girls, I have become a prolific consumer of fairies, princesses, ballerinas and all things pink.
