I wish I was in a place in my reunion where I could write about how I feel about adoption politically. I want to write about how infuriated I am that adoptees can't have their OBC's and I want to write about how shocked I am that people completely unassociated with adoption have no idea that altered birth certificates exist. I want to write about how many children are stuck in foster care, children who desperately need and want homes and yet they are ignored because it is too much work for families to adopt them. I want to write about how adoption should be solely for those children who have no options, who are abandoned, abused, discarded; how we as adults should be brave enough to step up to the plate and bring them into our families and love them, nurture them. I want to write about how wrong I think it is that adoption has become about what is the best way to heal infertile parents instead of what is the best way to heal emotionally injured children. I want to write about all these things, but I can't. Not yet. I can't seem to get past all my pain yet. I still need this blog to help me heal. I can't seem to write about others until I can see light at the end of my own tunnel. I wish it was different, but it's not.
