Adopted kids have issues. There’s no escaping yours. I want to make sure you know, if you ever feel alone in dealing with those issues, I’ve got your back, girl.
1 – People will always have questions. You will never have all of the answers.
2 – Ask your parents to take you to therapy. At least find an adopted kid support group where you can all relate to each others’ craziness.
3 – Embrace your quirks. They will never go away, no matter how hard you try to flatten them. This is a blessing. Your quirks are some of the best things about you!
4 – It is OK to breakdown and cry about nonsensical waves of emotion. Cry it out, girl! Those emotions that make no sense – those are your adopted kid issues.
5 – After you cry it out, reflect. There is beauty in your breakdowns. Find it.
6 – Not everyone you love will leave you. You are more worthy of love than you realize.
7 – You are never too old to wear a tutu.
