He has written a book detailing his experiences and has appeared on numerous TV programs including 20/20. Kelly Dempsey is an adoptive mom and lawyer who began working in the international adoption space after her daughter got stuck in Vietnam. She has worked tirelessly to correct flaws in the intercountry adoption system and advocates for permanency for children.
