GoodnewsEverybody.com: Adoption, Orphans, etc… Outreach
I’ve met many people who have been adopted while living in Morris, Minnesota alone. Many would be blessed to hear and read their story, which is why I’m dedicating this website to open it up to have people share their experience (good/bad).
I hope people’s heart would be change by reading this story before, during, or after adopting. I’ve heard many sad cultural sensitivity issues, which is why I’m doing this.
I would love to hear your story on being adopted? Please contact me with your written story via e-mail or a personal interview.
Below are some examples of questions to e-mail me back w/your answers, but feel free to add any others:
How old are you now?
When were you adopted?
What country were you born in?
Where do you live now?
What were some positive-good experiences? What were some negative-bad experiences What were some struggles you faced growing up (eg. identity issues?)
What would you like your adopted parents to know?
Have you thought about finding your “biological” parents? If no, why? If yes, why?
Have you found them?
What was that experience like?
What are some suggestions that you would like to share with people in the “same boat” who have been adopted? What are some lessons that you feel people should know before they adopt from your personal experience?
Any additional questions, suggestions, prayer requests?
Sorry, if these questions might be very sensitive, but feel free to answer whatever you feel comfortable. Many of these questions came out of this Korean “Chasms” Adoptive Documentary Video, which I never knew what it was like being adopted. God has touched my heart with this issue because of the many adopted friends He has put in my life. I never experience adoption, but I can say we have been adopted by Christ-God’s family-when you come to know-Him!
