World Adoption Day 2018. So much going on my life right now that I’ve not had a lot of time to think much about National Adoption Awareness Month. But I’ve seen so many great posts in just the last 9 days...posts full of raw honesty and glimpses into some of the broken places. I’m thankful for so many adoptees courageously sharing their thoughts and revealing some of their deepest wounds. I’m thankful for the adoptive parents sharing their hearts for their kids. And though I haven’t read any, I know there’s birth parents out there who have been sharing lots of hard and good things too. THIS is what adoption is. It’s so much more than a smiley face. It’s people drawn together who together move through the darkness and brokenness into the light and healing of Jesus. This is why we should celebrate adoption...because beauty indeed can come from ashes through Him. It’s hard to be vulnerable and to be seen, y’all. But it’s so so good. It heals us as we share and it heals others as they are navigating their brokenness and hurt. It’s the testimonies of grace and hope that encourages us to keep on. Let’s keep sharing. ❤️ Tagging some folks whose posts encourage me to keep on. . . . #adoptee #adoption #adopted #beingadopted #chinaadoption #adoptiontriad #myadoptedlife #story #share #listen #validate #speak #truth #heal #hope #grow #wounds #healing #adoptiveparents #birthparents #vulnerable #NAAM #nationaladoptionmonth

Reposted from @relentlesspeace: • “I find it serendipitous the hashtag dates are the year I turned 18 and requested my sealed adoption record with my OBC (which I still don't have) AND the year I finally met some of my biological family through DNA results. I will never stop looking for answers. It's become a never-ending quest.” • #AdopteesSpeak #1988to2018

“This woman had turned into my sister these last few days. ⠀ I couldn't imagine what she was going through at the time. I cried for her heart ache, I cried for her sacrifice, I cried for her selfless heart, I cried simply just for her. ⠀ Monday morning, Lemmon and Birth mom would be released from the hospital and we would be taking her home. ⠀ I already am crying thinking about that day. Birth mom, Lemmon and I stood outside the hospital. I can't even begin to describe that moment in my life. ⠀ No doubt, it was as sacred as when I was sealed to Riley. ⠀ Our sweet birth mom handed Lemmon over to me as we both were sobbing. ⠀ I couldn't even imagine what this incredible women was going through. She was now my hero. She loved Lemmon so much that she knew this was exactly what was needed. ⠀ I know without a doubt that the angels of heaven were there helping Lemmon's birth mom pass her over to me, and the angels of heaven were there helping me receive Lemmon into our arms. ⠀ That moment will forever be engraved in my memory.” ⠀ 📸 = @kashiapalmer

The holidays tend to bring up memories, difficult emotions, and changes in attitude. When we need some heavy emotional support, I often diffuse Frankincense, Cedarwood, and Orange. Today Cypress felt like a good addition for some added grounding. #emotionalsupport #christmasmemories #diffuserblends

Chiles justitiemi

”Detta får mig att känna en stor skam för mitt land” Chiles justitieminister Hernán Larraín kommenterar olagliga adoptioner i Chile på ett mötet i Andra kammaren. Under detta möte i departementet hade siffran 10.000 stulna barn kommit upp och justitieministern var lite skakad när han skulle kommentera ärendet. Justitieministern Hernán Larraín uttryckte sin bestörtning vad som föregått i landet. Han förklarade att han skämdes på sitt lands vägnar. Hernán Larraín lovade att kontakta Ana Maria Olivares och gruppen Hijos y Madres del Silencio för ytterligare samtal. Han vill träffa brottsutredaren Mario Carroza se över vad man kan göra för hjälpa i arbetet. Det var onsdagen den 26 september som Maria Diemar, en representant från Chileadoption.se tillsammans med Ana Maria Olivares från Hijos y Madres del Silencio var och talade på ett möte i Andra Kammaren i Familje-departementet: Sesión de ”Comision de familia”.

37 years ago today, my sister and I became U.S. citizens. Holding all of the complicated shit that goes hand in hand with being an American... and a transracial and transnational adoptee immigrant, at that. But mostly gratitude that my sister has been alongside me in this journey. I’ve always known that “home” is with her. ❤️ #adopteesareimmigrants #adoptee #weareallimmigrants #sisters

Being adopted ruined my ability to ever be a normal human being. I literally have had to learn to force myself to have compassion and trust with other people. On my own, I would’ve likely become a serial killer. #Repost @fp365 with @get_repost ・・・ #Repost @stephjms ・・・ I want truth. Not hearing truth about adoption has caused irreparable damage in so many lives, including my own. The world loves adoption, but mostly the stories of people growing their family, rescuing “orphans” from certain death, and the emotional reunions shown on television. How is it that our country can be outraged by migrants being separated at our borders, yet immune to the SAME atrocities happening every single day in our foster and adoption systems? Give me the dirt. Give me the blood. I don’t want positive adoption language, I want to hear and tell the stories that cause discomfort. Its ok if you don’t like it. I don’t either, and living it has been no walk in the park. How do we share these truths in a way that will wake people up, but not shut us down? Sending out so much love to all the activists who courageously speak, even when the risks are high. You have my respect. #adoption . . . #adoption #adoptee #adopteevoices #birthmom #truthteller #justlisten #familiesbelongtogether

Sometimes you can spend a lot of time around someone without intentionally hanging out and being present. So I asked mom (@thekatturner) to coffee at @cariboucoffee #MNroots) followed by brunch at @bullagastrobar this past Saturday and we had soooooo much fun!
