Today’s post is from Tess, who came to the US from her birth country, China.
There are no known records of her biological parents.
Our guest contributor, Tess, recently celebrated her 11th birthday.
1. I wish people knew…. that I would like to know more about my birth parents and it is hard that I cannot.
2. I wish people would… not judge.
3. I wish people wouldn’t…. look at me oddly when I am with my family. Everyone looks at me oddly because I don’t look like them.
Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts, Tess. What important reminders to all.
As our guest blogger Hannah said in last week’s post: No Adoption Looks the Same:
The world is full of all types of people from different backgrounds and I AM one of those people. We should all try and judge a little less, and accept a little more.
Happy 11th Birthday, dear Tess.
I hope it’s the start of a wonderful year for you!
