Transracial Adoption from one black girl’s perspective

Birthdaze

I got a card from G*** for my bday and I've been recieving emails from her as well. The birthday card was nice, but I have to admit it felt a little strange. But it seems like it never stops being strange.

This past weekend I saw my family for the first time since "contact". It was actually a great weekend (except for the car crash, sliding off the mtn at stevens' pass) and it was just a great stabilizer for me, to bring me back down to an emotional grounding that is safe and loving. The biggest thing about my mom and dad is that they are so full of love.

There were the usual questions – "Are they your in-laws?" – "How are you related?" – and my personal favorite – "Are you all on the same check?". (roll my eyes)

  1. Every time I’ve been with my birth parents, and we’ve gotten that “Are you all together?” question, oh, how I’ve wanted to reply, “Yes, we are. I keep them as pets.”

    Hope you had a happy birthday, despite any and all weirdness that comes with the territory!–>
