If there are any adoptive parents who stumble onto this blog, I encourage you to imagine yourself sitting at the top of the triangle. Imagine your arms and hands stretching downward. See the strength in connecting all of us.

Adoptive Parents Read This: You Might Be at the Top of the Triangle
When I think about how the past 18 years of reunion have gone with my son and the hows and whys of all of it, I can't help but think about his parents (his adoptive parents.) Especially his mother. She had lost a child herself, and I think because of this experience, was able to understand what I had lost. In our correspondence through letters and in person, in all these years she has never once been negative toward me, any aspect of the reunion process, or post-reunion life. The last two years, we've been at the same Thanksgiving table.
