Author of Daddy, Come & Get Me: a dad's adventure through a Guatemalan adoption.

Background Information

 Daddy, Come & Get Me: a dad’s adventure through a Guatemalan adoption is a spiritual memoir of Gil Michelini’s journey of bringing his daughter home. Moving alongside the story, Gil reveals a plausible story, based on the official Guatemalan adoption documents, of how a birthmother made the decision for adoption.

Gil couldn’t find Guatemala on a map when committing to the adoption of his daughter.  He didn’t know anything about starting an international adoption. He didn’t know anyone who had adopted internationally. 
He did have a goal of adopting a child from outside the United States. It wasn’t inspired by a mission trip or another experience; it was something he wanted to accomplish. His wife didn’t share in the goal nor did many of his friends; however, God turned his goal into a calling—through a nocturnal dream—when his daughter yelled from a mountaintop, “Daddy, come and get me.”
This is the first American dad’s memoir of following his call to adopt a daughter from Guatemala.
"And we are the dreamers of dreams" ~ Arthur O'Shaughnessy
Daddy, Come & Get Me is the fulfillment of many of Gil Michelini's life goals. He is using his first published work as a platform to raise awareness of the Christian obligation of caring for orphans. The purpose of Gil's outreach--I'm Available for Orphan Care ( to provide training and connections between those available to care for orphans and those who can assist.
Gil and Fran have been married since 1988. God has blessed them with four daughters; the youngest of whom is adopted from Guatemala. The Michelini's live outside Indianapolis, Indiana.
