In establishing this community, I am striving for a platform of curated stories of adoption and abandonment. My story is one of both. Adoption is a beautiful process and one of the greatest, most loving, actions someone can ever do. Abandonment is a common thread people can relate to in some form or another. Abandonment can be experienced in many different ways—not just physically (like mine). It can be experienced in: emotional abandonment, relational abandonment, divorce, racism, death—all can leave us in the feeling of abandonment. There are so many different forms and stories that need to be told. There is Power in Your Story.
The hopes of this site is to foster conversations, connections, guidance, wisdom, and healing. The stories that will be shared hopefully will bring new opinions, understanding, and meaning to these topics.
If you have a story that you want to be heard—reach out to share your story on this site. Our stories can drastically impact people's lives. Be brave and courageous. Share your story.
