I commented on someone's blog tonight...just finally got fed up with reading about how excited APs get while they buy children away from their families. Good for you! You just legally kidnapped a child! And how much did that cost you? Back in 1974, my aparents paid $225 for me..bet inflation has made that amount significantly higher.
I'm sick of hearing how great it is that this AP or that AP has "save" a child from living a horrid life. Get over yourself!!! I grew up with an amom who was the Queen of all martyrs. A part that she played very well..and one that she still plays.
One night when my grandfather was doing particularly bad health-wise at the nursing home, my amother, auncle and I were sitting at his bedside and my mother said, "Do you want to tell your uncle your news?" It was awkward to say the least. After I told him and he'd left, she said, "Well, he was probably shocked and didn't want to say too much because he wasn't sure how I was feeling about it". I'm sorry..WHAT THE FUCK DID YOU JUST SAY? My reunion isn't about you. For once, I have something that I can claim for my own. And that has been the best thing about it..I am finally finding myself.
