We weren’t born, so death is of no consequence.
“There is a certain detachment to adoption. Being ‘chosen’ rather than ‘born to’ does it. Because we did not arrive by natural means, and so much mystery (or outright lies) are our baggage, we often feel not only that we do not fit in, but that we are disposable. That’s the thing about being chosen, you can be unchosen. And some adoptees aren’t going to wait for the dismissal; they are going to finally take control of their life by ending it.”
I felt suicidal growing up after my adoptive parents divorced. It was another sucker punch to my stability being challenged but I didn’t cave in.
Thank God for the voice in my head that told me not to quit.
