Time For A Change

, Time For A Change

so I’m waiting for my uniform in the dryer…. and all I can think about is how I am dreading the day tomorrow. Verbal abuse of customers for a wage that isn’t livable. Hence, why I started back to school. I picked a business degree because I knew it would open the most doors. But lately, I’ve been wondering if that’s the right major. I was violently physically assaulted 2 years ago while on the job and have had a wonderful experience with the best lawyer and just felt like I want to help people. I want to make a difference. However, I am far too emotional and bull-headed to be a successful lawyer…and then I started doing an English paper on adoption. Being an adoptee myself, I am fascinated by the history and the process. In my research, I’ve seen so much misinformation and so much hurt caused by the adoption process. I suppose I’ve had a rose-colored view of the whole process because my adoptive family is literally perfect. But there are those who never reunite with their biological parents, those who go to abusive homes, those who are lied to…. and I felt.

The Dark History of the Adoption Process

Maybe that is my calling. Maybe I can somehow help heal the hurt caused by past adoptions and affect further reform in future adoptions to protect all parties involved. I even tried writing a template for a customizable adoption book for kids. I feel telling an adopted child from the beginning is key to their ability to adjust and cope with being different. I wanted to make it customizable for race, religion, ethnicity, gender, families that have 2 moms or 2 dads, biracial families, etc….. If you are adopted as well, what do you think? any suggestions?

About Loren Bullitt

My name is Loren. I am a 30 year old female working full time and going back to college. I haven't had the easiest time of things. I have depression and migraines and other bad things have happened (I'm sure I'll get into that). But life has not been without its blessings. I was adopted as an infant by the best parents on the planet and they've stood by me through it all. This is my blog. This is me living my truth and coming to terms. Hopefully someone else will read an article or two and be helped as well. Anyway, God Bless. and Welcome to my crazy life. I am interested in freelance writing if you are looking and like what you read.
