You Are Invited to an Adoption Identity Search!

You are invited to join me in what I’m calling an “Identity Search!”
It doesn’t matter who you are or what you do or how and if your life has been touched by adoption.

We will be searching for clues, confirmations, circumstances, and confidence.

Up for the journey with me?

I’ll give you an adoption identity fact with each post.
Identity Fact: There are currently 7 million adult adoptees in the United States

I look forward to your responses to the invitation and the Identity Fact!

Have You Been Carrying Around Old Things, Like Me?

Dear friends,

There’s a photo that I’ve been hauling around in a folder for years (at least 30). Of course, I can’t put my hands on it right now, but let me describe it to you. ┬áIt features a Jewish man who is weeping profusely, his face mostly buried in a damp handkerchief. If you read the caption, he is remembering what happened, probably to his family, in the Holocaust.

Now, why would I carry this newspaper clipping around for so long? Was it his sadness that resonated with me? Or, was it something deeper?

It wouldn’t become clear for years. Eventually, I would see it was related to my identity.

How about you? Have you had a similar experience? Reflect back and share!
