Adoptions

Attorney James Michael Marshall was born on December 12, 1969, at St. Francis Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. However, on the day he was born, that wasn’t his name. His birth name was James Edward Perry. His mother was a 17 year old senior in High School, his father a 19 year old freshman in college. Neither was prepared for the enormous responsibility of raising a child. However, because of their moral and religious beliefs, abortion was not an option. So, the decision was made during the pregnancy that their child would be placed for adoption.

Three months after he was born, James was adopted by a young married couple, Don and Kathy Marshall, from Columbia, Tennessee. Don and Kathy didn’t know their adopted son’s birth name was James, it was purely coincidence that they decided on the name of James as well. The rest is history. James grew-up with a wonderful mother and father who provided him all the love and support that any child could have wished for.
