Sunday Thought

Amazing how a humourous MEME has the power to evoke a blog post out of me! I shared this on twitter and as it became something of a rant, I decided to share it here too .. Anyways. Looking at this image brought up a train of thought that obviously needed sharing with you

I’m laughing cos this made me think of my AM. She’s now classed in hospital as a “frequent faller,” when I had my first child at 36 I was a “geriatric mother” Love how this country generalize so easily. If I react negatively to obvious racism I’m “an angry black woman”.

If an adoptee reacts outwardly instead of the preferred silence, and dares suggest someone is offence, they are “overly sensitive ” If an adoptee has to correct  a statement of “fact” about how it feels to be adopted , they are “ungrateful”

Deflated

If we have to point out that we need support from our Adopters to find our history , we are ” hurtful and insensitive” to our adopters.

If we take steps to trace our birth family , we are “Shunning our upbringing and should be satisfied to have been rescued”

If we don’t show gratitude endlessly by denying we existed before our adoption ,we don’t deserve unconditional love

We should accept that our lives began only once the ink had dried on our adoption papers and not a minute before

It’s fair to say this list is not in any way exhaustive ..but writing it so far I am already exhausted!!

Thanks for reading

Much love always
