It doesn’t have to be complicated or uncomfortable. It doesn’t require a lot.
It’s about raising awareness and hoping for a change for those involved in the world of foster care and adoption.
nothing will completely take away that loss, but processing the feelings surrounding it are so very important.
To my birth dad.
To my adopted dad.
To all my other dads.
Happy Father’s Day.
I hope that there will be more acknowledgement of trauma and emotional confusion that is so prevalent among adoptees. I hope it shows that children have a lot more insight than may be perceived.
Adoption is hard. Regardless of age, there is trauma, the two go hand in hand. No child comes as a blank slate.
