Were you one of the kids whose mother had to give you up for adoption, (her crisis-pregnancy did not end up in abortion!)
Has your heart had a longing you’ve tried fill with school, achievements, perfectionism, music, cars, food addictions, drugs, alcohol or sex? Maybe your adoptive parents are great BUT the emptiness is still there. Well 15 years ago I met an adoptee, who became a birth mom herself at 16 and had to put her own daughter up for adoption. She had some trials in her life that probably resemble your own, but she had a determination I’ve not seen in very many people. Driven by the deep desires of her own heart to know her birth parents and the unending questions about her own baby, adopted by strangers, she began to SEARCH…. and what a search it has been. It did not stop with her. She helped another person, and then another, reuniting birth parents and children, sisters and brothers, aunts, uncles and grandparents and special needs adoptions. She works with adoption agencies, attorneys, adoption laws…and to date has reunited over 2,500 adoptees with their birth mom and/or birth dad. Her name is JENNIFER ROBINSON and she can be contacted at http://www.givenright.com .
Jennifer has a remarkable ability to find people QUICKLY. She frequently hears the phrase “I have looked for them for years and you found them in just a few days”. She gives many, many hours for these adoption searches but she gives credit for the remarkable results to God who is a Father Himself and loves to see family restored. She has had many opportunities to “sell her integrity and her adoption search business” to Hollywood and reality shows, but she turns them all down because it is YOU she cares about and your heart. She is YOU… she can relate to all the heart issues you have as an adoptee…..loving your adoptive parents but still longing to know your own. She can relate to you as a birthmother, the ache to know “what happened to my baby”, and even as an adoptive mother, because she is raising her husbands son by a previous marriage. Contact her. It might be just the OPEN DOOR TO HEALING YOU’VE BEEN WAITING FOR.
We all hope you had a great time on your holiday. Thank you for wanting a big miracle, we are programmed for small miracles. We will take anything right now from God.
That was a very special comment someone left that was about 400 lines long. As ridiculous as it was, rather amazing they would leave such a comment. Could it be they read your Christmas post and have had too much eggnog?
Fabulous picture, Rachel said to me “hey maybe that is the bridge Sarah has to walk”.
hi, mrsDoF! What a nice welcome. I thought of that song, too, when I saw this picture 🙂
hey, crayoneater, OR is it an excellent scriptural of the pictorial? Hmmmmm….
BFE, since this is a holy post, how about this, used to be on a poster in my office, “Blessed are the flexible, for they shall not break.” You are blessed, indeed, Bucky 😉
hey squirl! I’ve got a few brainy ideas on what to post about the vaca; I’ll get it up sometime today 😉
misfit, thank you. I love this photo, too. You are quite welcome to swipe it, use it for your desktop or whatever; I’d be flattered.
oh, you guys, lawbrat, kitty, hoss, william, momo, sierrabella, nina, it just makes me feel so good to have you all stopping in to welcome me back to blogworld. Thank you, thank you.
eclectic, you pretzel-girl, it is the Rocky Broad River, in Chimney Rock, NC. Beautiful place.
thanks, blogaholic and cori/tink, nice to see you here 🙂
andrea, oh, good. Glad the clouds have passed 😉
nilbo, yea, blame me for the ulation of your discombobs, why don’t cha?
howdy, kranki, sfg, bente, thanks for the warm welcome!
ern, aagghh! masses, you say? You’re scaring me, girl. I’ll just blather on as usual and be surprised and delighted that nice people actually take time to wade through my words. Thank you 😉
sassyfemme, thank you, and as I said to misfit, do swipe it; I’m so tickled that it seems to make some people feel what I feel when I see it. Of course, you’re also welcome to keep coming back to visit it 😉 Now, if it reminds you of home, where is home? I know you’re a Yankee in TX, but I don’t know where “home” is for you . . .
hey, ladybug and “bro-mo”! Good to see you two!
lisabeth and rachel, hello, thanks for stopping in. I hope where Sarah is right now feels as cleansing and hopeful as that place felt to me. Whatever bridge she’s walking, she’s surely not alone. Still praying for real good news, and real soon.
hey, JOMAMA! JR, lori! Welcome, all, it’s nice to see and hear you again.
