Yet Another “Be Grateful” Post

This. Is. Horrible. Do not do this to people. I had five years with my birth father, Rick, and even though they were five long and incredible years and I have many amazing memories with him, I could have known him much longer. I could have had more.

Because my parents lied to me my entire life about how much they knew about my biological family. They knew exactly where they were living, what their names were, phone numbers and addresses of them and their family members. If my sister hadn’t contacted the agency and gotten into contact with me, I don’t even know if I’d have gotten any time with him, or them, at all.

So yes, I AM grateful. Very grateful. But don’t you fucking dare tell me to be. Or any other adoptee.
