An Open Letter to My Adoptive Parents

Dear Parents,  Oh, you two. My soul goes to pieces writing this. You raised me with the most humble and open of hearts. You never hid my adoption from me.

Advocating for My Son Isn’t Difficult. Letting Go Is.

From the time he turned four, going literally anywhere was a terrifying experience. He would bolt from the car and climb a light pole or run to see something interesting on the opposite side of the street. He narrowly escaped being hit by a car hundreds of times. In public places, it was a given […]
