But before I was Deanna I was Melanie.
I was adopted in 1966 in a closed, domestic adoption.
I was reunited with my original mother, sister and brother in 1993.
Like most adult adoptees I still don't have my original birth certificate or my adoption records.
Healing from post adoption issues has been a progressive work, an ongoing journey throughout my lifetime, as it is for millions of adoptees.
I can't wait to meet you.
You may connect with me by commenting on blog posts or:
Like Adoptee Restoration on Facebook, receive updates & communicate with me there.
(Please note: I underestimated the amount of personal mail I would receive when I started this blog. I do read and answer every single email but usually not immediately due to the volume. Thanks in advance for your patience and understanding.)
Follow me on Twitter.
I am also the spiritual columnist at Lost Daughters and a regular contributor at Adoption Voices.
And last but not least, I also write a personal blog with several posts a week, (not adoption related), at deannashrodes.net. I'd love to connect with you there, too.
