Take Charge of your Life

There will always be people who are crabby, obnoxious, bitter and mean. Just as there will always be people who are decent and honest and happy. Whether you are adopted or lived with your biological family, you will be a product of your environment and circumstances. Let's face it - the percentage is probably higher that there are more biological crappy parents than adopted's just numbers. But there are good and bad and whatever you wound up with is what you had and that's the past. Don't blame who YOU want to be.

I think it's funny when people are really negative. I'm a "pull yourself up by your bootstraps" person and can't stand the whiners (as you all know)

Miss Hollyburn BC...I really don't care what you think--you are one of the whiners.

Whining drives me nuts, too, P. Both kids might drive me right to the hairy edge of insanity with their antics, but they don't whine, 'cause they know it'll get 'em NOTHING.

Ugh. I hate it.

What people don't seem to get through their heads sometimes is, like it or not, sitting around whining as an adult gets you NO respect. It gets you treated like a child. It's a simple fact.

Sandy, if you read this comment...I'm sorry you had to lose Austin. I saw your video, I know you are hurting...NO ONE should talk you into giving up your child it should be a decision that is 100% yours and for the right reasons. I speak from an adoptee point of view when I say - there is nothing to forgive from our side. You think he won't forgive you but it's not a thing most adoptees even think. You do have to forgive yourself though and hopefully the path of life will get a little easier to one wants you to forget him.
