So much of a child’s sense of worth comes from how they’re taught about who they are and where they belong. I love the current culture of openness about adoption – a culture in which adoptive families are encouraged to talk openly and lovingly about their children’s “origin stories.” I love that openness is becoming the norm, and adoptees have direct access to the people who chose adoption for them. When children are taught to see the beauty of their stories, and the blessings it brings into the lives of everyone involved, they are empowered to move forward in their lives with a sense of confidence and love.
