My Writings…

I have written my whole life; diaries, journals, letters, poems and more. Writing is how I make sense of my life, my experiences, emotions, and even at times myself. Here I will be sharing a collection of writings, related to adoption with you.

ON THIS ADOPTEE LIFE:

Mixed emotions, as I was starting to invite the idea of digging into my adoptee experience…

Thoughts About My (First)Mother

Thoughts regarding the implications of my adoption papers…WHAT HAPPENED?

This One is for My Fellow Transnational Adoptee Brothers and Sisters from Colombia, and in Reaction to Watching “The Dark Side of Adoption” from the Show “The Traffickers”…

A black hole filled with ghosts, my first year and a half of life…

(Writing my feelings and experience in the third person…) A Long Way From Home…Who is She?

The Realization of Having Been Abandoned…

Vulnerability

Dear Adoption

This was the first piece I ever wrote in regards to my adoption and it is about not feeling I belong fully anywhere. It was originally published on the site Dear Adoption, a platform that shares the written work of adoptees, in an effort to elevate the adoptees’ voices.

RG Adoption Consulting

I wrote this piece because I believe that, while I can work to change many aspects of the adoption process, domestically and transnationally, and while I personally advocate family preservation first and foremost, I can also use my voice to help fellow adoptees, mainly the little ones who don´t have one yet, current and prospective, by sharing my story, my experience and my truth with a group who really needs to hear adult adoptee voices; the adoptive parents.
