Genuinely Jarman (Blog)

I would like to share this blog because it shows the many ways to find a family and the pain and loss that is always evident in adoption.  These parents talk openly about their loss and grief and how they deal with it. I think that is an important thing to think about if you are considering adoption. Read as many testimonials as you can, and go from there.

    Your heart knows in the silence of the nights the secrets of the days, but your heart’s knowledge is difficult to put into words. The depth of your feelings and emotions present a dilemma because they are boundless and unquantifiable. There is no scale to measure your degree of sensitivity, the intensity of your suffering and joys, or the stamina and resiliency needed to overcome impediments. Ultimately, the emotional depths of some moments in life are so overwhelming that they can only be resolved by God. (Adoption Detective, p. 189) Seek to find the words you already know in thought, and when you are in your lowest emotional states of mind, and there is no one there to help you overcome distress and discouragement and breach the rift, you will find it therapeutic to humbly direct your accepted wisdom to God. —Judith Land, author & adoptee

    Life’s journey for individuals who are orphaned, fostered, and adopted appeal to others because their lives are interesting, unpredictable and unique. That is why every adoptee should be encouraged to share their story with others.

      Thank you so much. I am honored to have you like my blog. 😀 While I am not adopted, I hope to adopt one day and I do believe that is important for everyone to learn their story and share it when they are ready. I don’t think anyone should have to share their story before that time though. I look forward to reading your story. I have a few friends who were adopted and are going on an “adoption detective journey” of their own. 🙂
