Something about me …

Hello curious readers and thank you for visiting my blog!

I’ve always wanted to share a bit of my life, for therapeutic reasons, for wanting to give some hope to those in similar situations or just for the selfish reason of putting myself out there !

This blog is all about life ! Life as an adoptee, life as a teenage mum, life as a struggling young adult, life far away from home, spiritual life, lonely life and now a somewhat content life. Oh yes and a very exciting , life changing moment : the life after being found …

To some people, those who will be doing me the honor of taking some time out of their busy lives to read a bit about mine, well it will maybe seem a bit much, a bit unimaginable, but I’m promising you that all that I will be writing here, will be the truth and I thank you in advance, for taking some interest in what I have to say.

“The way to love anything is to realize that it might be lost.” ~ G.K. Chesterton

    You should make a post where you share 25 random things about you!! That’d be awesome! That way we can get to know you better (or, at least me!)

    I’ve noticed that you have left a ‘like’ on my blog, thank you.
    I don’t really know how to ‘make’ those likes visible or if that is possible. the reason I’m writing is because I am curious as to why you liked those posts.
    thanks, Gert Mcqueen

    I saw that you wandered by my blog today so I wanted to check out your site! Being adopted myself, I know I’ll be checking back frequently! I had a different situation. I was abandoned in Korea (half Korean’s ranked lower than dogs back then), a cop found me and turned me into an orphanage. Within 8 months, I was in America with my now family. A little different twist, but I look forward to reading your story so thanks for wandering by on this beautiful Saturday! Just brightened my weekend!

      Hi Sarah, I would imagine, considering your circumstances, there is little to no chance that you would ever be able to find your birthmother. Being a bmom myself, I cannot imagine the heartache she must have experienced when giving you up. I’m willing to bet she thinks about you everyday…you will always be in her heart.

    Thank you for visiting my blog and sharing your adoption story. As I’m sure you noticed, you were the first! Our blog has only been up for a week or so.
    I enjoyed reading your story and want to say how much I admire your strength of courage to keep your babies and fight for what you believed in and loved the most…yourself & your children! And I look forward to reading more about your story!
    When I was forced to surrender my daughter, it was 1968, and keeping our babies simply was not an option. We were young girls with no choice and no voice. If our boyfriends wouldn’t marry us, we were sent away…end of story. My daughter’s father held all the cards, my fate and the fate of our daughter was in his 17 year old hands.

    • Well thank you for accepting my story.

      I’m not against adoption and I truly understand why some mothers are having to give up their children. I’m so sorry what you had to be put through. I guess I’m lucky that I had allot of support from the government and from school so that I had the option of keeping them.
      I wasn’t able to find out on your website, but are you looking for her? I’m just curious. ^^

    I searched for my daughter, Joanne (her adopted name), for nearly 2 years back in 1997-1999. I finally hired a PI to find her, and she was found in less than 3 weeks, when she was 30 years old. We have a wonderful, ongoing runion and its been an amazing journey.

    Also, thank you for “liking” my blog. I look forward to reading more from/about you.

    What do you mean “the life after being found”?

    • I’m an adoptee and I was found by my sister in 2009. I hope that answered your question.

      My blog has moved btw, you can read more about it here : www/
