Building Bonds With My Adoptive Parents

In this article, adoptee Ashley Foster describes a few of her memories of her parents – her mom providing cookies and cocoa after a girl scout parade, date nights with her dad, being tucked in at night, going on fishing trips. These, she says, are the substance of building a lifelong bond between parents and children. She writes, “The bond a child has for a parent doesn’t occur with a flash of light or confetti falling from the sky. Mine started the night my adoptive parents brought me home from the hospital. It continued in the days that followed as they treated me like their own child. That bond grows in the kissed boo-boos and the homemade lemonade, the school projects, and the driving lessons. It lives in the day-to-day moments that make up our lives. It lives within us.”
