Our guests today are here to talk about a topic that has two equally compelling but different angles. One side relates to medical technology and its blessings as well as its unintended consequences. The other side: welcoming a baby into a family. The topic is embryo adoption. Intrigued? Our guests today are  Kimberly Tyson, Executive Director of Snowflakes® Embryo Adoptions, a division of Nightlight® Christian Adoptions. For more information go to https://www.nightlight.org/


Our guest along with Kimberly Tyson is Nate Birt, an adoptive father and the author of a new book that outlines his family’s experience with embryo adoption.

Nate Birt and his wife, Julie, hoped they might be blessed  with four children. And those blessings started coming along. Almost 10 years and three small boys later, Nate says he brought up the subject of baby number four only to discover his wife had another idea. And thus began their journey that culminated in the birth of their daughter Phoebe, who was placed with their family through embryo adoption with the help of the Snowflakes® Embryo Adoption Program, a division of Nightlight® Christian Adoptions. More than 20 years ago, a couple struggling to start their family approached. His book Frozen, But Not Forgotten: An Adoptive Dad’s Step-by-Step Guide to Embryo Adoption releases in just a few days. The book, Frozen, But Not Forgotten: An Adoptive Dad’s Step-by-Step Guide to Embryo Adoption,
[ISBN: 978-1-946889-96-6] will release in April from Carpenter’s Son Publishing. It will be available from selected book stores and online retailers.

He is currently a security consultant and an analyst for Channel 7 News in Boston, Massachusetts. He is also an Adjunct Professor at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy on Cape Cod, where he teaches a course on How to Identify and Prevent Transnational Crime, and Cyber Security.

Eric Caron has held senior positions within the Department of Treasury, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and INTERPOL. Throughout his career, he successfully initiated and managed covert operations that identified and disrupted international WMD proliferation networks, terrorism, terror financing, and transnational crime networks involved in drug smuggling, human trafficking, and intellectual property rights (IPR) violations.

He was the lead DHS official in Dubai, responsible for preventing WMD materials from entering the U.S. and military technology from being acquired by Iran. In addition, he led training in anti-money laundering, counter-proliferation, and border security for UAE and Oman Police and Customs Officials. He also traveled to Afghanistan to lead an anti-money laundering and corruption seminar.

Former Special Agent Caron concluded his career as the Resident Agent in Charge, Homeland Security Investigations, Providence, Rhode Island, where he led the state’s largest counterfeiting investigation, resulting in the seizure of over one million dollars of counterfeit NBA and NFL sporting apparel. In addition, he oversaw the successful prosecution of more than a dozen child pornographers.

His career highlights include the very first Department of Justice prosecution of several executives who illegally provided a defense service and exported controlled U.S. technology to former Russian military facilities. The imported finished Russian technology was subsequently sold to the U.S. Military. In addition, he arrested a former dean of Moscow University and his Belarus business partner who were attempting to acquire US F-15J radar equipment.

His late father was a decorated New Bedford, Massachusetts Police Officer and former Marine.

When he is not lending his knowledge and expertise to the country’s continuing fight against crime, evil, and terrorism, Eric Caron is likely to be found spending time with his family, at the gym working out, or walking along the beach.

He believes, as his father taught him, that family, country and God come first. He also believes strongly that, as John Adams once said, “We are a nation of laws, not of men,” and no man or institution is above the law. For more information or to purchase his book go to https://switchedonlife.com
