Why Adoptee and Restoration Are In
the Same Sentence

Some people restore old cars.

Others restore furniture.

I sense a calling to restore something far more valuable.

If you are reading this today, and you wonder why in the world  adoptee and restoration are in the same sentence, I'm so glad you've landed here. I know many of my adoptee friends will read this and never need an explanation. I'm glad all of you are here, but I'm especially glad that people who have yet to understand may read this and have pause for thought.

The prolific adoptee writer B.J. Lifton once said, "No one has yet put into words the complexity of being adopted."

That hasn't stopped some people from trying.

To be honest, I've only been "trying" publicly since July of 2012. I wasn't brave enough to write about this just a scant six months ago.
