Some of you know and some don't, I was adopted. I was two days old when my parents got me. Its all I have ever known and my parents have always been open and honest about it all with me. I had a closed adoption and have never really felt the need to find out more. All that being said I mainly wrote this blog because I always want my girls to know where I come from, and this blog is for them. Also they are getting a new cousin hopefully soon as well!!!
We are super super excited for them and are excited to watch all this unfold! They are currently having a fundraiser going to raise money for the initial process of their adoption. Here is the link, again I didn't write this blog for you to donate (although I am sure they would appreciate any help) I really felt like this was the perfect time for me to tell my story to my girls to explain to them what a loving thing their Mimi and Poppy did for me all those years ago. Now while I am sure I would have gone to another loving family had it not been my parents that got me. I am SURE I am with the right family.
only picture of all of us that I had on this computer!
God, has a funny way of doing that. I can't even count how many times I get told how much I look like my brother (who they had biologically) and my mom. Just the other day I walked into the bank and the clerk said..."are you Debi and Alfred's daughter'? I said yes, she immediately said, of course I can see it in your eyes...Um, ok! I love it! Also I was placed in a family that had twins too! How cool is that?! I love that I have that bond with them too!
I know that I will have a special bond with my new niece and nephew, and I so look forward to that. They will be in the right family as well!
