Adoptee Space – A Poem

Adoption is…

A process of changing one’s identity


Overcome it. I will.

But it’s real

So real that sometimes we can’t see it

But I see it now

Dragging myself from the fog




Dare I say… beautiful

Adoption is pain

Adoption is change

Grateful for the people it brought in to my life

Grateful for the perspective it brings

I will speak my tale

Speak it true

All of it

The good

The ugly

It’s time for honesty

Not least of all to me.
