Margrey and Roy Thompson, married ten years and experiencing successful careers as a physical therapist and a dentist, jumped into the world of adoption. Over time with three apparently healthy children, they slowly uncovered their children's learning deficits and the behavioral and emotional issues they must negotiate. Margrey expanded her physical therapy clinics to multiple locations while Roy, a general dentist, rose to be a Trustee to the American Dental Association while still maintaining a busy private practice. Looking back thirty years they feel they were 'young and dumb' yet together overcame what plagues couples driving many to divorce.
Ten years into marriage, Margrey and Roy Thompson began the process of adoption. Ten years and three children later, they discovered the learning deficits and behavioral issues they must navigate. With mutual trust and respect, they were able to commit the time necessary moving their children toward being productive adults. Watching marriages around them fail reinforced their commitment to stay healthy, positive and resilient. This is their story of persistence and tenacity to cement their relationship giving their children a basis to thrive. It is a story to give you hope raising more challenging children in a society that loves perfection.
