I was adopted as an infant and grew up in Southern Indiana. My adopted mother lovingly instilled in me the idea that all things are possible. In this site you will find wonder, imagination, and the secrets to create your own success.

In honor of my adoptive mother and the birth mother I have never known, I established the Why Mom Deserves a Diamond® contest. Every year, thousands of kids submit words of love and appreciation for the chance to win a diamond to give to their moms. Today the contest is in honor of all moms.

I am the author of Adopted Like Me- Chosen to Search for a Birthmother and
In Search of Mom- Journey of an Adoptee.

I am a GIA gemologist and the founder Gallery of Diamonds jewelers in Orange County, California. If you live far away, you can order my creations from http://www.GalleryOfDiamonds.com.

The amazing thing about every day is we create it. I have been brave in sharing my life experiences and observations, and I hope I effect your life in a positive way.

I would love to hear from you. Call me at 714-549-2000, or email me at info@galleryofdiamonds.com.

Have a Brilliant Day,
Diamond Mike Watson

    Hi Michael, I wanted to thank you for following my blog ‘Beyond Beauty Tips’ and supporting me in my journey for six months.
    I recently moved that blog to its own domain http://toraveabout.com
    so I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to my blog at its new address.
    I hope to see you there. Thanks!

  11. How beautiful that you created a contest to honor your mothers… Though this is my first visit to your blog and I don’t know your story yet, I am sure I am correct in assuming that both of your mothers are/were very proud of their son… I know I would be.
    What a wonderful tribute…

    • Why thank you, Thirties! The wonderful mom I knew was my adoptive mom. My birthmother died before I had the chance to met her. The contest, however, is in honor of all moms. I’ll make sure I learn more about you.

      • You are very welcome. I’m sorry you weren’t able to meet your birth mother, but I am glad you had/have a wonderful Mom. It is wonderful that your run this contest in honor of all moms — what a special gift and tribute.

  12. What a kindness, to honor mothers-all mothers, it is a kindness.

    Thanks for the follow, Mike! As I read your “About,” you kinda took me back to my days of romping the streets of Philly and hearing the “Robbins 8th and Walnut” commercials all the time. That was before Robbins jewelers outgrew Philly :) Looking forward to connecting!
