Doug Riggle

Doug Riggle
Time Lord Wannabe
 
Growing up with a television in his room -- before cable and before the internet -- Doug Riggle discovered an old British science fiction show that forever changed the way he looked at time. What he learned watching Doctor Who, has helped him through some difficult challenges in life. While his faith carries him through life's heartaches, what he learned about time from Doctor Who gave him a context from which to operate. 

Doug understands adoption from all angles. He was adopted as an infant by his parents. Later in life he adopted his thirteen-year-old son from foster care after going through a failed adoption. The challenges of being an adopted child and adopting a child connect his past, his present and his future. Through it all, lessons he learned about time from watching a Time Lord, Doctor Who, keep him grounded.
