Video: Adoptees and Birth Mothers Experience Tough Feelings

Have you seen this?

Denalee Chapman June 17, 2015

For some adoptees, adoption is not an issue. For some, it haunts them with feelings of abandonment, low self-esteem, and great loss. It seems the only way to reconcile those feelings and to heal is to embrace the truth, whatever it is.

Search and reunification may be the ideal outcome for some. For others, a search that leads to answers is enough. Cassi Bella-Ward created this video of haunting music and beautiful images as a tribute to birth mothers and adoptees who may feel lost and are hoping to become found. For those not knowing where to begin the search, there are websites, organizations, and individuals dedicated to helping through the process.
