I was adopted when I was five months old. I am thankful that I have been able to learn the truth about my heritage and the circumstances around my birth, despite being adopted under the closed adoption system.
I post regularly on my blog, My Own Velvet Room, and am currently at work on a memoir about adoption.
My husband and I live in the rainy Pacific Northwest with our doted-upon Yorkshire Terriers. Together, we have four children and two brilliant grandchildren.
If you are an adoptee, a birth parent, an adoptive parent, or anyone else who has been touched by adoption, please share your stories by sending them in an email to email@example.com and indicate the name you would like your post attributed to. If you prefer to remain anonymous that’s perfectly fine.
This blog is a work in progress and I need your help to build a blog roll of positive blogs and a comprehensive resource page. Thank you in advance!
