Do you have any questions?
I've mentioned before that to me, being adopted is just part of my story and is completely normal. But throughout my life, my friends have always had questions about it, and I can tell that when all of the sudden 'the right time' pops up to ask some, there is a sense of curiosity and an eagerness to satisfy it that I can see in their eyes. (It makes me smile.)
Let me tell you right now, I have no issues with talking about my adoption. (You've probably figured that out by now though, right?) I do not find it in the least awkward.
I would hazard a guess that most people might think it's awkward for me because it's like betraying my parents by talking about it? I think I thought that a bit too when I was growing up, but now I'm an adult (I know, crazy isn't it?), I understand that for them, all they see is gratitude. Without the selfless actions of my birth mother (B, remember?), they would be childless. Mum and Dad have always been open about where we came from, so when we did have questions, it was never hard to ask them.
I wondered if maybe there are some of you out there who are curious about any particular aspect of my adoption journey so far? Anything I haven't covered? Any random tidbit you wanted to know about?
Leave me a comment here (if you don't have a Google account you can just select the 'Anonymous' option and comment that way. Just be sure to leave your name and/or email address so I know who you are!), or on my page on Facebook.
I'll answer your questions (if there are any!) in another post, so stay tuned.
