Yet another great read on dealing with grief, this time from Megan Devine.
Can you imagine a world where we could get others, friends, family members, adoptive parents both current and prospective, to FEEL the grief we feel every minute of the day? Would it change anything for us? For them?
If we could Powder-like transfer the life long grief felt by mothers who have surrendered their children to adoption to prospective adopters, would they still adopt? Maybe so.
If we could transfer the agony some adoptees feel to prospective adopters, would they feel so fabulous about taking that child from his or her family of origin and re-branding it as their own?
