Every adoptee is supposed to have an adoption story…
I remember my adoption story. It is still told today so many years later, most of it involves how I came to be adopted into my family. It describes exactly what took place, and, why I needed to be adopted. All of which was valid, all of which was done ethically, and, all was done with grace.
Your adoption story is an integral aspect of who you are, how you fit, what your place is in your family. It’s supposed to be a truthful account of both sides of your story, created into a moving timeline of how you joined your family.
My story works…
If the story for Veronica ends here –
How the hell will Veronica’s adoption story work for her? Because it will have to be truthful because not only does she have memories – she will have the internet including her very own Wikipedia page on the legal aspects, and dozens, and dozens of news stories, blogs, forum postings, Dr. Phil reruns, CNN news segments. At least she will know she was wanted, desperately wanted, by her family of birth – something many of us never had.
I just don’t think you can craft an adoption story that is going work in this case, no, I just don’t think it’s possible…
