Have courage, Jerry. You are not alone in this suffering due to adoption. Moving through it all to see some shred of self, some hope, and some happiness is what we survivors do. One step at a time.
Dear Adoption, I’m Hurting
You took me away to make me better,
you said it’s the only way,
but I never recovered who I am,
it’s like this, still today.
I am supposed to thank you for this,
I’m supposed to be grateful,
my mum I lost and do so miss,
adoption, you are sinful.
I’ll never forget and not forgive,
what you did to me,
I am, with help, beginning to live,
but this, at fifty three.
