Birthday Blues

This year for my 32nd birthday, I wanted to spend my birthday in a place that I was unfamiliar with. The joy of traveling to somewhere new was pulling at me for some time, but due to my work and school schedule, I could not get away. I waited patiently and developed a plan. I decided to pack up my whole studio apartment and stuff it all into a storage unit so I could become a nomad and to…

Love Is Not Enough

A few weeks ago I was asked by a friend of mine to participate on a panel for an organization that she works for called Sierra Forever Families. She wanted to create a training for the staff from all three locations that focuses on the perspective of adult adoptees and foster care alumni.

That Was Something New

I was walking through town and I got this sudden flow of energy run through my chest. I immediately identified it as missing someone. That someone was my birth mother.

The Value In My Name

I am not one to put a lot of weight on labels when trying to describe myself to others. In fact, I make an effort to detach myself from labels as much as possible. After much thought, there is one label that I value and am proud to have and that is my name.

My name was given to me by my birth mother, and although my parents had the right to change it during my adoption process, I am so happy that…
