Why am I doing this?

You might be asking yourself, what is this blog about and why is it being written? Well, I’m here to tell you exactly that. I am an adoptee. That is, I am an adopted child. Honestly, that can be one of the hardest things to say out loud, but I’m saying it nonetheless. Because this can be such a hard and emotional thing to think and talk about, I have looked for support out there. The sad thing is that when I googled “adoptee support groups” there really weren’t any. In fact, all of the support outlets that popped up were for adoptive parents. Of course I agree that adoptive parents need support groups, but that doesn’t mean that the adopted children don’t. It was extremely disappointing that there is such a lack of support out there for children that have been adopted. I mean, this is a huge thing and having an outlet is so so so important. So, I decided that I wasn’t going to be passive about it anymore. Instead, I made the decision to start this blog, share my thoughts, and hopefully make a difference to someone somewhere. This is a dream of mine and I can’t wait to see where this takes me.
