My Adoption part 2

You are here

I was adopted at a few weeks of age, before the 30 day waiting period had expired for my mother to change her mind. I remember my adoptive mother telling me from a very young age that I was adopted. In fact I was not allowed to forget it. I was told that my natural mother was 16 years old and died giving birth to me. To explain my deformed foot, I was told that because my mother never wanted me she tried a backyard abortion which failed. This is hurtful and cruel to hear as a child.

You took me in against my will
My true identity you tried to kill
I grew amongst your hardened hearts
And yearned to return to my mother’s arms

Your plan was to implant lies and tales
In one so young, to cause me to fail
Not grow in strength, thought and deed
Only to cause my heart to bleed
(Kerri)
