“I am a proud adoptee”

A statement that is not said enough.

Instead, we see the word “adoptee” as the scarlet letter that we want to hide from others.

Being an adoptee has left us with questions of:

  • Who am I?

  • Am I good enough?

  • Where do I fit in?

We build these blocks of lies on top of us:

  • I am worthless.

  • I do not fit in.

  • I am different.

  • I am alone.

  • I am not loved.

These blocks start weighing more and more until they make you feel immobilized. We can become victim of negative thinking to completely take over our mindset and in the darkness, if feels like there is no escape.

When we try to escape, we find that it is hard as adoptees to reach out for help with the lack of resources and others not understanding what we are going through.

That is why I created Lost to Leader, to help adoptees, like myself, find their self-confidence, vulnerability, and strength to lean into a community.
