What 2020-2021 has opened my eyes to

Okay well we are all aware of 2020. We have been through a pandemic as will as a war in the political world. Most of us have never seen anything like this. This is not a political blog for one party this is a blog on what I have experienced as an adoptee through this time. Social media can be used as such a great way to watch/ stay connected with your friends and family when you can not be with them personally. You might live in another state or because of the pandemic you can not travel. What a blessing social media seemed to be. I felt like I literally watched friends and family’s children grow up. As an adoptee I have both my biological and adopted family on my social media (Instagram). I have been able to learn a lot more about them all. I have to tell you I truly believe you can tell a lot about a person by their Facebook. You know it is a lie that blood is thicker than water. Some families stand up for family no matter what. It is my thought process that when a family member is wrong you recognize it and do not just cover it up but you still love them just the same. Family is such a complex subject. I have learned the true meaning of ” birds of a feather stick together”. If people are stuck with angry people too long they became angry themselves. The pandemic has kept people caged up like animals with nothing to listen to but the lies of the media. People are getting depressed and scared. I have family that I can clearly hear the panic in their voices when all I used to hear was joy and love. I have family that are blood that will jump in front of a train for me. I also have family that is not blood that would do the same. On the opposite side I have family that are blood that I feel would push me in front of the train so to speak as well as family that are not blood. If you are not adopted you may never be able to learn that blood is not thicker than water. I love all of my family but I know who to stick around with and who to distance myself from for my own peace. This political battle this year is not about two parties. It is about pure evil and good. This year is much like adoption in ways. Very divided. Republican, democratic, black white atheist and christian we say. We all tend to separate ourselves now when we are really one nation under God. Adoption can have the same division. Biological family, adopted family, biological mom, adopted mom, and so on. They all divide themselves and compete when really they all have a common denominator (the adoptee) The evil as the devil does is fooling so many good souls into thinking that the good are evil and the evil are good. The bible warns us of these end times. I feel sorry for my fellow friends and family because they are being fooled. They are hateful to me over politics which is very sad. If you do not have God in your life during these times you will go down like the Titanic. Facebook has more power than I ever would have known. They have caused break ups in relationships. They have taken our freedom of speech away. They report lies and keep the truth censored. These are very scary times my friends. I am a patriot not a Democrat or Republican. I want a land of freedom and one nation under God. I do not want to be around anyone that does not want the same because they will only bring me down. When you are thinking about adoption my fellow adoptees remember that God might have spared you from even worse things if you were not adopted. We go through a lot of emotions as adoptees. I have learned that their are hidden blessings in all cases. This year made a lot of people closer as well as broke some up. Adoptees you have to open your eyes wide and concentrate on the blessings of adoption. Do not drowned in the pain of adoption. Adopted family talk to the adopted child/adult openly. Never treat it as the white elephant in the room. Love those that love you and pray for those that do not. I pray you know the difference. I have met some of the most amazing people finding my birth family.Of course some continue to let me down but I chose to stay focused on the positive. Too much of the time as adoptees we focus on what we lost instead of what we have GAINED. In this last year Americans have focused too much on what they hate instead of who they love. The evil in today’s time is trying to divide us and get us as far away from Godly life as possible. We can not let politics, social media and other media change our good hearts! In adoption we can not let our losses overtake our lives. Focus on the good. God wants you to love your enemies but if you hang with them you will become them. Just be careful. Love at a distance and I suggest stay off social media that destroys relationships. How fast the media made us forget our love for one another. I pray for all adoptees, adopted parents and birth-parents today to find peace within yourselves. I pray for all Americans to know God and pray for his will today. I pray for all involved in adoption to see the positive in every situation. AMEN

  1. I really appreciate the positivity in this post. So often the conversation is geared towards differences. There are so many putting their opinions over the wellness of other human beings. I feel that this stuff doesn’t matter so much as long as we are safe, happy, and people are taking care of each other. Great stuff, and I hope you keep up these positive messages! -Trystn
