13 reasons…From The Humanist Adoptee

IM000389By way of Land of a Gazillion Adoptees, a recent post from The Humanist Adoptee: 13 Reasons Why Adopted Children Are Not Lucky

From the comments to the above:

It took me nearly 40 years to realize how adoption truly impacted me — and I am still discovering new things about myself. Over time, I felt the sting of many of these points — one by one. When I was younger, it was all about “where did I come from and who do I look like” and now, it has become “look who I am turning out to be” after having been in reunion for over 22 years. Questions are still being answered, grief is still taking place and emotions are still running high in my families …  My life growing up was wonderful, yet I still experienced nearly every single one of these impacts at one stage in my life or another. Maybe not every adoptee has these experiences, but many of us do. Thank you for writing!
