Christina Romero was adopted from South Korea when she was two years old. She is the voice behind the blog Diary of a Not-So-Angry Asian Adoptee and eloquently provides an adoptee’s perspective in discussions about adoption.
In this article, she addresses some of the key beliefs and fears that may prevent an adoptee from feeling peace and allowing themselves to unfold into the people they were intended to be.
She writes, “Adoption is complicated and messy and wonderful and heartbreaking. Life may feel wonderful to you now or it may feel confusing and awful. Know that your feelings about being adopted are valid and will likely change throughout your life – and that is completely normal and okay.”
