Do you pray?
I do not. Â Despite being raised conservative Roman Catholic, I am not a follower of any organized religion and consider myself agnostic. I believe in higher powers, something greater than myself, but I do not subscribe to the bible I was beat with or any other theology. Â And yet,Â I want to ask those who pray, to pray. Or think good thoughts. Or do a rain dance. Or make a sacrifice. Or whatever you do to wish someone good luck.
I gifted a very dear friend an AncestryDNA kit. Â She is an adoptee and first mother and she is very special to me. Â For years she has spoken off and on to me about wanting to search but she has very limited information. Â We are hoping that DNA testing may help her as it did my other friend.
I want her to find her family almost as much as she does. As I said on my Facebook, even if she finds graves, she will find. Â My friend deserves to know her people, to find out where she came from, who she is – fully and not just the part the law recognizes. Â All adopted individuals do.
Selfishly, now, for my one friend, I ask — pray.
