It just seems appropriate to talk about my birthday as a adoptee since my birthday is 12/11/1972. Yes it is tomorrow. I do not know how other adoptees feel about their birthdays but I almost despise mine. I feel like that was a bad day for many. I tease and say I was a science project gone wrong. I think I make jokes to make myself feel better. I would much rather celebrate Good Friday as my birthday when I came home to my adopted family. I dread my birthday coming every year. I am married to a family that celebrates EVERY thing to the fullest! That makes it harder. I would love to hear how other adoptees as well as those that have put their children up for adoption feel about birthdays. I think it is good to share each other’s different outlooks on subjects such as this. It may help us all to heal.
