We are in the process of cleaning out our basement and came across some old adoption papers. First of all, it’s so crazy to think that the only way to communicate back then, was to write/type letters and wait for a response bc calling long distance was much more of a financial burden in the 70’s.
Second of all, for those of you that don’t know, myself and both of my siblings were all adopted.
Third of all, after reading these letters, it’s mind blowing knowing how hard it was to adopt a child.
Fourth of all, one person used the term, “oriental” 🤬 I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt since this was early to mid 70’s. 😉
And last but not least, I am so incredibly thankful for the life that I was given, that I am a survivor (my twin sister died while we were in the orphanage at a few months of age) and that my most awesome parents provided an amazing upbringing for me and my siblings. Love you so much Mom and Dad!
