No, we adoptees didn't "choose" our destiny.
One thing I find it irritating to read is when people keep saying to their fellow hopeful adoptive parents
“Your baby will find you”, “your baby will choose you” - as if we adoptees are just hitching a ride in some hapless spare womb on our way to our true mission in life.
Yep, it’s me own fault I’m adopted, I just decided to complicate my whole life just for a thrill. I particularly enjoy the juggling, rollercoaster and tightrope - admittedly, they can be tiring and it is not surprising that many of my fellow peeps just want to stick to the ground - it’s safer.
Perhaps too many would-be adoptive parents have been reading this thing:
I remember one AP on another forum desperately looking for this story to read to her child - please, for the love of God, no - leave the kid alone. If my parents had read it to me, I think I would have looked at them and thought “What drugs ARE you on” lol.
My point is, what is wrong with just sticking to the facts. Let your kid make up their own mind. Stop spinning the saccharine stories.
