I’ve always known I’m the result of a busted condom. I always thought it was pretty rad that I got adopted. Self-pity for existing is selfish and pointless, as far as I’m concerned. Although it’s a dick move to tell a kid they’re not valuable or that they’re less of a person because they’re unplanned.

I didn’t think of that but I think that’s the opposite of what Leigh Alexander meant in this post.

Someone I know likes to say they need to “unthaw” something from the freezer and gets annoyed when I say “Why? It’s already frozen.”


You’re lucky. Having a pre-verbal (and usually unacknowledged) loss of family is hard for many adoptees. In fact, the fear “how can anyone love me if my own family didn’t want me?” is a very common issue, consciously or subconsciously.
