I found a new blog recently called Life Not Black & White that gives voice to the flip side of the reunited adoptee voice. She writes beautifully but that would be expected, as she is a Journalist from North Carolina. All of her posts are worth reading, and best if you start oldest which I have linked below but don’t stop there.
Just the Four of Us (link fixed – my apologies)
I tell stories for a living. As a journalist, I’ve interviewed my share of politicians, celebrities and everyday people. The average, everyday people always make for the most fascinating stories. No matter how insignificant you think a person’s life may be, I’ve learned that everyone has an extraordinary story to share.
A Girl Like Her – A Film by Ann Fessler – you can view the trailer here and the screening locations and dates for April include Durham, NC, Minneapolis, MN, Denver, CO which can be found here. This is a film I would give anything to see. If you haven’t read her book, The Girls Who Went Away, you really should put it on your list for 2012.
Malinda at Adoption Talk has a link to a review of October Baby that mirrors the thoughts I had when I first heard of this movie and saw the trailer. Well worth the time to follow the link to the complete review at On Icarus’ Wings. This is not a film I would go to even if someone paid me. Plus 10% of the profits go to an adoption agency. Just so wrong to promote adoption like this. I have already seen numerous posts about this movie. It all just leaves a very bad taste in my mouth.
Another post I keep going back to that shows the bizarre mentality of people from The Silent Birthmother about the day her daughter went to a different church. A must read.
Last night Cindy was invited to attend an event with her friend at their church. We told her she could go. So she went, but when she came home she was angry and was in tears!
