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.

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.

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.
