The Love I Never Had

Overview

When children are placed for adoption, their whole world is turned upside down. Whatever identity they had with mom and dad is snatched away.

Overview

When children are placed for adoption, their whole world is turned upside down. Whatever identity they had with mom and dad is snatched away. Some arrangements turn out great, but it's sad to say some kids are never placed in a good home. I was one of the fortunate ones. I had great adopted parents.

Years after the passing of my adopted parents, I decided to pursue my birth identity. Through the courts, I was notified that my birth mother passed away; my father was not mentioned. I found out that I have two brothers. I am the oldest. My mother gave me and my youngest brother up for adoption.

An adopted child has so many emotional issues. We feel anger, grief, pain, joy, happiness, and love. The emotions I thought were laid to rest with the passing of my parents have re-emerged with the knowledge of my birth family. My life expressed in poetry, is how I have been able to deal with so many unanswered questions.

Meet the Author

I was adopted at the age of 18 months old, by the most beautiful people in the world. My adopted parents meant the world to me. They showered me with so much love, that it did not matter that I was not their biological child.

Once I became an adult, I wanted to find out my identity. So years later after their passing, I decided to purse my birth family. I just recently found out that my birth mother passed away. I am the oldest, with two brothers; myself and my youngest brother where both put up for adoption. I have been in contact with my brothers, and we have planned a family union.

Because of the blessing that I was given as a baby, I am planning to become a foster parent. Not only do I have the love, I also have had the inner feelings of what it means to be lost and abandoned.
