August 29th edition of The Wall Street Journal includes an article on adoption by Naomi Schaefer Riley that features Tony. Here’s an excerpt from the article.
“Tony Nolan, an adoptee himself, now travels with Christian bands and speaks to their massive audiences about adoption. During “Winterjam,” a 30-city tour that recently concluded, Mr. Nolan recounted his story to some 350,000 people. His biological mother was homeless, mentally ill and a prostitute. A month before she died, he visited her in the hospital. “She grabbed me by the hand, looked at me and said, ‘The doctors told me not to have you,’ ” Mr. Nolan says. On tour, he conveys the message that “God knew what he was doing.” And after every concert, money is collected to help a local family with its adoption expenses.”
