Would You Have Rather Been Raised In An Orphanage?
In this post I revisited National Adoption Month, sighting adoption as an option for children in foster care.
There Is Hope
I was a disappointment, incorrigible, ungrateful, unappreciative, needy, defective, and generally hopeless, a throw away kid…written off and thrown away at 11.
Attachment, How Disordered Is It Really?
What do I have to say about attachment? I am not an adoptee. Nor am I an adoptive parent. Me? I’m just a former foster child and the daughter of a former foster child/adoptee. I think I may have a thing or two to say about attachment.
A Note To My Fellow Foster Care Alumni
Bad stuff happens to good people, it is not fair but it is true. You deserved better than you got. From your original parents, from your workers and from the system, they let you down.

"You can't lose Christmas.You STILL can't lose Christmas, Ralphie - Christine Moers
That's it. No details. No exceptions. Period. Finito. That's that.
The same goes for birthdays.
I have literally said to my children, "You can burn the house down. We will move into a hotel until the house is rebuilt. We will collect insurance money, rebuy gifts and still have Christmas. Because you can't lose Christmas.""
