Post-Adoption-Visit-Blues with a Side of Profundity


As a follow-up to Monday’s post, today we have another thought-provoking post from Angela Tucker, an adoptee who shares her personal experiences and reflections on her blog The Adopted Life.

In her post, Post-Adoption-Visit-Blues with a Side of Profundity, Angela shares something her birthmother said about her experience:

“…they cared a lot about you right away. But no one cared about me. Hours after you were born, I was back out on the streets. Homeless. But you were getting medical care, people were choosing your name, and searching for a good home for you…”

You can check out Angela’s reflections on those striking words here.
