Adoption Is A Sacred Exchange

“We look at adoption as a very sacred exchange. It was not done lightly on either side.” – Jamie Lee Curtis

Jamie Lee Curtis adopted her two children and even wrote a children’s book/adoption story called “Tell Me Again About the Night I Was Born.” She’s a mother who has put a lot of thought into adoption and recognizes its complexity.

She has said, “Adoption is a very complicated road filled with incredibly emotional and challenging aspects. At its core, adoption is about loss. It’s one that needs a lot of good support for everybody, so that everyone is clear about the feelings that are being stirred up for everyone. Birthdays, for instance, are very hard for adopted children. For everyone else it’s a celebration of the moment of birth, but for adopted children, ti’s the remembrance of a birth family they don’t have. So it’s complicated terrain but still a beautiful way to make a family. You have to just be really open to all sides of it.”
