Please stop for just a minute and consider what my tenth grade geometry teacher always said--
Don't always assume you know, because it makes an a** out of "u" and "me."
And then perhaps take a moment to read through more than one blog post, and maybe even read the synopsis under the tab labeled "The Journey" or read through several of the posts in the sidebar under "Popular Posts," say, for instance, "I didn't search because I was looking for a new family" or "Do you regret that you were adopted?" or even venture to watch the video of my reunion with my Omma...
It's always more complicated than what you think you know.
*Addendum to address other inaccurate a**umptions commonly made:
- No, I do not despise fellow adoptees that love adoption.
- No, I do not dismiss fellow adoptees that speak positively of their adoption experiences, rather I question the status quo that favors their stories to the neglect and dismissal of adoptees who present more complex experiences and stories.
- No, I am not anti-adoption, but I am also not pro-adoption. Again, it's more complicated than that, at least it is for me.
- No, I do not detest adoptive parents. But and besides, this ain't about you, remember?
