Dan's advice to other adoptees;
to all fellow adoptees,
to all those searching to all those who feel lost,
to all those needing answers know your feelings are valid know you are in the right place.
Know you are intelligent and important.
Know you have power and choices.
Know it will all be okay.
Know you are LOVED.
And know you're not alone.
You are the climax of your story, and you have all the power and the decisions. the creator has placed you for a reason. Sometimes we may not know the purpose, but you have the possession of the blueprints.
My prayer to you is that you will find what you are searching for.
Be patient, listen, and keep going.
