I am Loved! I am an Adoptee....

As an adoptee I hear those sad adoptees who think they are rejected. That is simply not true. We adoptees are loved twice as much...more even. We are loved, cared about and cared for. We could have been rejected like many millions are rejected every year and sucked out of the womb bit by bit and discarded in a medical waste bin. But instead, our bio-mothers (and sometimes bio-fathers too) loved us so much they gave us a life, gave us a chance, gave us more people who love us.

My daughter's bioparents totally love her. They wish that circumstances could have been different but they wanted her to have the best life and people who would love and care for her.....

I feel so loved......I feel sorry for those who look at it any differently.

Thank-you for this post. I know some folks who are pushing us towards adoption, and others who vilify the option.

It seems the blogosphere has only the bad stories to tell. I know that adoption is not the "easy" option. There can be very real issues, and not everyone is up for them. I don't know if I am. I hope that I am. Of course, I always thought I would do both - give birth and adopt.

I think the person who is able to get the support she needs to make the decision to form an adoption plan is making the ultimate sacrifice. To realize that for whatever reason you are unable to give your child the life you want indicates how much you love your unborn child.

Atleast for me (of course I can't speak for others), I will love the child we bring into our life unconditionally and more than life itself. Sometimes when something comes easily it's taken for granted, but for people who cannot achieve what they want so desperately and suffer physically or emotionally when they do reach their goal they value it far more. (hopefully that makes sense)

There are always people who will villify adoption....there are always people who will villify anything. In the main, however, it is a wonderful option when chosen carefully, with much consideration for ethics and when you educate yourself about the process. We certainly are blessed by it!!

And you're right, P....our child IS twice-loved....and he will know it always ;)
