Talking about adoptees…

Doesn’t everyone have an agenda for being on FB and in groups, Administering Groups or Pages? How sick are adoptees of being told how to behave, what to do, what is appropriate behaviour and treated rudely, inconsiderately and with disrespect. We are as ‘legitimate’ as anyone else!! We have rights, even if those are not recognised in some places and their restrictions bound up in seemingly ridiculous and convoluted red tape, procedures and money making exercices. How sick are we of explaining ourselves, justifying our actions and defending our attempts to have what others have?

The adopted ones blog

Recently, an adoptive parent was incredibly rude and dismissive about adoptees online, repeating the old trope that happy adoptees were too busy living their lives to be online in adoption groups, and the adoptees online had an agenda.  I took the exception to what she was saying about adoptees, but then had to remove myself because it stressed me out too much.  I don’t do stress.

But she is right.  I did come online because I had an agenda.
