Jackie Ruchti was adopted at a time when adopted children were often looked down upon and treated differently. It is Jackie’s desire for adopted children to feel loved and accepted. Adoption is a loving family structure, just as birth families are.
Jackie was born in Evansville, Indiana on the Ohio River where she enjoyed catching frogs with her twin brother as a young girl. She loved school and began writing poems at age seven. Her penchant for writing would be discovered later in life.
She currently lives in beautiful Coeur d’Alene, Idaho with her husband and their adopted schnauzer mix Frankie.
