Re: “Not a Pretty Picture

It never ceases to amaze me that adoptees who complain to activist adoptees tell us to be quiet. I've been reunited for 35 years, been interviewed on radio a few times, and there's always someone who says "I know who my real parents are." Well, not exactly. When I was found at age 18 by a sister I never knew, at that moment I said to my self, "I have two sets of real parents. How best can we all get through this?" I have never went back from this. The story of how you came to be is your story and there is a mother and father who created you. They more than likely were cohereced; my Dad was talked into giving me up after the death of my mom when I was an infant. No help to keep the family together. I as the youngest of 5. You never know the circumstances so don't judge.
