19th November 2007
Finally feel like I am catching up on emails and so on as we have had a relatively quiet week for us. It’s also been good to get back to working on our family tree and now have over 8000 names on it but still have loads to do on it yet.
I am relieved that it’s the end of National Adoption Week on (British) television but I successfully managed to avoid watching it apart from the odd couple of minutes here and there. It just winds me up hearing how wonderful and perfect adoption is for adoptive parents and how their children are so perfect and life is so wonderful. Even caught a bit where twins found their birth mother (to use their words) and they have the perfect reunion. Will be even happier when National Adoption Month is over. Each year it’s the same old, same old with families of origin being ignored so it is little wonder that people wear rose tinted glasses and think adoption is great. It would be much better if there was real education each November with the dark side of adoption being looked at but of course that will never happen as it would put people off adopting.
