Yeah, I didn't think so.
Shortly before going to the movie I read the following words by Betty Jean Lifton:
Even a reunion that is going well can bring an unexpected cycle of depression in its wake because of the emotions it releases. An adoptee can still have panic attacks and bouts of anger and grief, for issues are never completely resolved: they just get recycled and reappear when you least expect them. -- Journey of the Adopted SelfCan somebody please tell me who exactly it was who thought this whole closed adoption thing was a good idea. Sigh.
Have you had enough adoption awareness yet? I actually didn't plan to do all of NaBloPoMo this year, but once I'd done a few consecutive days I decided to try to keep going.
Just three more days! And then all these adoption issues will disappear forever! Oh, no, wait -- never mind.
