My Adoption Story: finding myself, searching for facts…
Here is MY story.
I did it. I finally made myself just do it. I usually have no problem forcing myself to do things, most people find difficult, but for some reason, this 23andMe kit sat for over 2 weeks. Got it registered on the website and it was so hard, having to click “not sure” to so many of the questions as well as filling out one of the surveys, that made me realize just how many anti-depressant and anxiety medications I’ve taken in my lifetime. I’ve never shed a tear, over my being adopted, until recently. Words cannot describe the emotions I’ve experienced lately. It always has felt, like I suffered so much ALONE, which is why I have flourished as a coach…. My mission is to help others who’ve experienced a lifetime a life of feeling hopeless, alone and lost. I’m trying to focus on the positive… That I’ll get answers, that’ll provide clarity or some sort of closure and understanding.
For now, though, a small photo album, a file full of about 100 photocopies regarding my first year of existence and this tube in this biohazard bag is all I have…….
