Love What Matters:
My adoption story has taken several turns since I began searching for answers and gaining insight into my identity as an adoptee. I shared some of my stories from the beginning as I knew, the journey I’ve experienced, and where I am now with Love What Matters, an online news platform that was kind enough to feature me in their adoption stories column. Check out the link below to read more about my story.
This essay features my perspective on how there are many incomplete narratives and opinions regarding adopted persons and the adoption process itself. My goal in writing this piece was to express my voice and adoptee in sharing my personal experiences and thoughts growing up about being adopted. An adoptee writing-focused online writing platform, Severance magazine gave me the honor in providing my writing a home.
