Diamond Mike Watson 

Solitary. This challenge is all about reflective, quietly unexpected moments.


This is a picture of a classically solitaire ring.  We call her Eve.

Adoption Life Adventures

He found his birth family 35 years later. Then he helped them find a ‘vanished’ sister.

Arika Herron, Indianapolis Star Published 5:14 p.m. ET Aug. 24, 2019. https://www.indystar.com/story/news/2019/08/24/adopted-indianapolis-man-helps-birth-family-find-vanished-sister-muncie/2087285001/\ Everyone in “Diamond” Mike Watson’s life told him he should give up. The baby in the 60-year-old photograph was probably dead. And if she wasn’t, they said, she may not want to be found. It wasn’t out of callousness or apathy. The opposite […]

How I became Diamond Mike

My name has not always been Diamond Mike. In fact, when I was born I never had a name. The name Michael was given to me three days later by a loving woman and man who I would later call mom and dad. I was adopted. I never did meet my birthmother, who died in […]

Police Report

Today I filed a missing persons report for my sister, Debra Kay. It appears there was never such a report filed since she vanished as a child. This will be submitted to the Indianapolis police, where my birthmother was living at the time of her disappearance. I hope the relationships I have forged with my […]

The Anniversary Ring

“You love birds can sit here with me if you want,” the elderly man said to the young couple desperately looking for a vacant breakfast table. “I’ll be leaving soon, and it looks like these are the last empty chairs in the house.” The Garden Terrace was a romantic spot that peered across the Pacific […]

To whom are we praying?

Less than a few hours of oxygen remain on the small submersible that imprisons five passengers in the freezing North Atlantic. Millions of people are praying. Millions of people also believe in the power of prayer.  Surely this concentration of thought will lean toward a positive result. Surely with our focused intention our prayers will […]

    My diamond fell out of my ring in our 13th year of marriage at a Cracker Barrel. There was a message in that one action. Can’t call it an “act of God” because that would be too funny, also pompous! Thanks for taking a look at my blog.

    Pleased to meet you. Since my wife and I are in the process of adopting, I was wondering about the details of reform you spoke of.

    1. Diamond Mike Watson

      Hello John. My books will be available soon in a download reader form. As an adoptee, I believe everyone is entitled to know of their birth origins.

    Hi, thanks for visiting my blog. When I was a teacher in a small town in Oregon, a student at the school I worked at wrote an essay and won a diamond ring for her mom. She designed the ring and the store made it for her mom. Her mom was a teacher at my school. She adopted this very troubled girl and changed her life.

    I too adopted a child from “the system” when he was 12 years old. I hate to think what would have happened to him if I had not stepped in. Thanks for your generosity as I know you are blessing a lot of very deserving mothers.

      Thank you, it sounds like you’ve been a blessing to the lives of others, as well. Thanks for reading.
