MARY LORRAINE DANROTH
Everyday someone has a Birthday...everyday an Adoptee has a Birthday...everyday there is a struggle to get through the day...every fucking day! Don't get me wrong, some of the kept have sad thoughts on their Birthday's, but it usually involves them being upset about getting another year older.
The Adoptee has to suffer the grief they have had to endure since birth...how many kept can say this? How many kept dare to say they suffer more on their birthday than an Adoptee?
It would be nice for once to receive a hug of compassion on my birthday from someone who understands that all I want to do is grieve. I need to grieve for the loss of my first mother...I need to grieve for the loss of my heritage...I need to grieve for the loss of my Ancestors...for my loss of who I should've been.
Our brain was rewired a birth...we had no knowledge of this...there were no Doctors that knew this was a thing when I was born. Now that we know this, we can only hope that our healthcare system can get with the program and help us. We shouldn't have to do it alone. We have already had to grow up alone in a family of strangers.
