I have always loved to dance. As an adult adoptee, a bio mom, and an adoptive mom, I dance between love and loss regularly. I dance with joy over small victories and small signs of acceptance. I dance to escape pain and to avoid obvious rejection from my family(ies). Let me continue to dance with the pain, the understanding, the surrender, His plan, and not faint.

A healing concept . . .

A dear friend told me that my parents chose adoption . . . chose to adopt me.
I had somehow lost sight of that.  I grew up always being told that I was chosen.  However, since my birthfamily search and my “awakening” of sorts to my adoption, I have lost sight of that.  I have been rejected by my birthparents, and I viewed myself as a second option for my parents.  They did not choose to adopt me; instead, the could not have their own biological children, so they “got” me.  But my dear friend reminded me that my parents, once knowing they would not have biological children had two choices:  1) to continue as a couple with no children, or 2) to choose to adopt/become parents . . . and that they wanted to be the best parents they could be.  :’)   . . . . big sigh of comfort and relief.
