Being rejected by family is not unusual. Most families have their problems and issues. And, it's tough to take. In adoption the emotions multiply, because many of us are rejected by not one, but two families. And, several times over at that. From birth, to adoption, to search, to reunion, it can be confusing, overwhelming, frustrating, and I can go on with adjectives but you get the "picture" as provided above. Adoption is not the cure all for unplanned pregnancies. It does not "fix" what is wrong. It simply changes it. As adoptees, we need to be heard, and understood, but mostly, we need the truth.
As flower to bee, as leaf to tree, as cloud to sky and rain.
As foot to toe, as face to nose, as person to a name.
Together these like fish to sea forever will belong.
Just as notes an artist wrote, or lyrics to a song.
Like tracks to a train this perpetual chain is what the world's based on.
There's links between each living thing, and dusk that turns to dawn.
A lost key to a lock, a stopped hand on a clock, are vital connections gone.
Like pasts left behind that we need to find in order to carry on.
I hope you know what I'm trying to show, the point I'm attempting to make.
Like a child to its mother, or sister and brother, some bonds aren't meant to break.
