MARY LORRAINE DANROTH
I have finally come to the conclusion that adoptees were actually born to be role models and teachers. It is not our calling to stay with people who didn’t want us. It is in us to make sure that history does not repeat itself. It takes us along time usually to understand the rejection that we have to face, for some of us that means multiple rejections from multiple family members. Yes it hurts...yes it’s hard to move on...but it is with this pain and sorrow we can reach out and yell at the top of our lungs to make sure the up and coming adoptees don’t have to suffer to the degree that some of us have had to.
So with this knowledge that I have I will continue to voice my story, to anyone that will listen, and in turn I will be that shoulder for anyone that needs it. That means adoptees, adopters, Birth Parents and birth family members that are caught in the middle of it all.
This is really no different than what I do in everyday life...before I yelled “I Am Adopted!” People were drawn to me for support and a listening ear. I solve problems everyday and every night even when I’m supposed to be asleep.
I love these people that I am there for. If it weren’t for them coming to me for help, I would still feel worthless.
