Can I tell you something? When I first started writing this blogpost, it had a completely different energy. Initially, my thoughts were focused on writing the heavier side of adoption. My words were weighted. My heart-felt burdened. Maybe that’s because I’m feeling A LOT right now: preps for an upcoming surgery, planning for my recovery, and all the “mom feels” you can have when you’ll be away from your kids. I could hear my self-talk whispering that I was “drained,” “depleted,” and “overdone.” Moving through the many-layered emotions of this season has been demanding on my mindset and on my heart. Earlier today, in the middle of spiraling into limiting language, I heard an even louder voice that said—STOP! This voice urged me to get up out of my chair, take my laptop outside, fill my lungs with oxygen, recharge, and begin again. I needed a change of perspective. And, stat! We all need that, from time to time. Life can throw us some mighty big curveballs. For a moment, I wanted to isolate myself and hide. That’s been my challenge as an adoptee: reminding myself that I possess the power to face the curveball. You see, I’m an adoptee who has struggled. Just like so many others, I’ve faced many demons inside of my adoption journey. I’ve felt defeated and overcome. Rejected and forgotten. I’ve been angry and outraged. Hurt and afraid. Isolation and loneliness have held me captive. There were times when these emotions seemed to have the upper hand. I was left disempowered and scared. Then, a voice called out to me. In the middle of my despair and in the throws of my pain, I heard the same voice that I did earlier today. It said—STOP. RECHARGE. BEGIN AGAIN. It can be a struggle to listen and to trust that voice. Standing up when I want to fall down takes muscle. Mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual muscle. Here’s a fact: adoptees have real and valid reason to fall on the floor and stay there. Life has shown us the ugly face of abandonment, rejection, neglect, abuse, and betrayal. Often, we can become engulfed—swallowed up—by the darkness of it all. Staying down is not who we are, though. Adoptees are resilient people. It’s important for us to acknowledge our resiliency. It’s what we’re made of. I offer this thought to every adoptee reading my words: when those darker shadows fall all over you, I hope you’ll say to yourself—Stop. Recharge. Begin again. I hope you’ll listen to these words and take action.

Hey I was just wondering if as a 19 year old young lady I can still be adopted. I’ve been on my own for awhile and honestly I just feel I’m not ready. One of my parents is on drugs, and the other one didn’t want kids. I’m going to college and I’m trying. Not having someone to help guide you and having stability is very difficult. I really understand why a lot of young adults are taking their lives. If anyone can direct me that would be great and very helpful. I hope one day when I get in the position I’ll be able to help young adults who also are going through my situation.

My name’s Lexi I had just turned 18 years old and I live in the Philippines. I’m looking for someone to adopt me as my parents are separated; my dad abandoned me and my mom when I was little. My mom has a fiancé but I dont like him. He is verbally abusive. He also battered my mom in front of me and my half brother when we were little and he hurt me physically when I was in 7th grade that I had to go back to my grandmother. My grandmother can no longer provide for me and once wanted me out of her house. Financial support isnt the reason why I’m here. I’m here because ive always felt restricted in a way that I can’t be myself here. I was diagnosed with clinical depression 2 years ago and committed suicide couple times. I don’t feel loved and my relatives are jealous of me. I don’t know where to go and what to do anymore. I took a gap year from school to focus on recovering since I have depression. I don’t feel like I belong here. I am cheerful, passionate, loving, caring, spontaneous, adventurous. I like to sing, draw and play the guitar. I only kept it short and simple. If you want to get to know me or know more about me, kindly send me an e-mail lexi_sx@yahoo.com

I’d like to share an important truth with you: adoptees have a biological story. They possess a birth history. A biology. The biology of who they are came before adoption was written into the pages of their biography. Adoptees will feel this biology pulsing within them for all of their lives. No. Matter. What. Their biology exists. It’s real. It’s ever-present. It’s a fact. It’s the genealogy of adoption. Biology is the adoptee’s chapter one. There can’t be a complete biography without it. Period. Yet, still, there are adoptees of all ages and backgrounds being asked to renounce their biology. To delete their first chapter. To ignore and even deny this essential part of who they are. It’s not healthy. In a world where connection to ancestry is growing increasingly important, and DNA tests can be shipped to our front doors, adoptees are still asked to pretend that the biology of who they are doesn’t really matter. Adoptees have been urged—for decades—to profess that their lives began at the point of adoption, at the moment of finalization. Please, hear me when I say that it doesn’t work that way. Denial of biology degrades the adoptee. It reduces their spirit. It hinders them from fully living. I hear from adoptees, every day, who feel pressure to withhold the truth of their biology—to bite their tongues and silence the story of their birth history. These same adoptees share with me their struggles with a lack of motivation, decreased confidence, feelings of insecurity, challenges with mental health, fear of rejection “whether imagined or real,” self-doubt, a lack of self-worth, and the list goes on and on…. They feel as if they’re in the middle of a major tug-of-war. Day after day, they’re caught in a conflict between the two distinct experiences of biology and biography. A battle they didn’t create but are continuously asked to fight. It’s as if they’re treading water; struggling to keep their biology afloat, laboring to keep their earliest self alive.

Hi, I'm Allysa from the Philippines, 16 years old turning 17 this year. I was honestly searching for a site where I can find someone who can help me. I am here looking for someone who can be my parents and can help me throughout my studies. Honestly, I am still living with my biological parents but right now they can't afford to send me to school. I am the eldest among my 4 siblings. I'm currently a grade12 student and will graduate next year, actually, we have exams this past few days but I wasn't able to take my exam coz I didn't pay my tuition yet. I really want to finish my studies for my own future. Anyone who has a Goodheart can help me. I just badly need your help. or maybe I can be a working student just to finish my studies. I'm a responsible one don't worry. I will owe you a lot if you're the one who will help. Just send me a message. here are my following social media accounts: email: exquisitedreamer28@gmail.com facebook: Allysa Cinco Instagram: its_aeysa

We met a 3 year old African American little girl an a foster to adopt event. She was sweet and shy, there was a lot going on so she was a little distracted. We submitted an inquiry on her and found out we were chosen. Very exciting and we’re moving forward with the process. I’d love advise on the following questions: -We have a 9 month old son. How will this impact him? Could it be negative? -Transracial family advice? -What’s the hardest thing I might face after adopting her?
