About the Author: Alan Murray
I'm a journalist turned entrepreneur and educator based out of the Philadelphia, Pa. area. Life changed when we were invited to host a 12-year-old orphan from Colombia for three weeks over the summer. While we were looking to adopt, we had never planned to embark on the costly, complicated international adoption process, but after meeting "Alejandro" we knew we couldn't leave him without a permanent home and family once he returned to Colombia. So we set up HelpHimHome to share about our experience as we work to find a way to get him back.
