Adoptive Parents – Smh

I knew that I’d get to it eventually.

But I wanted to sit and meditate on what I wanted to say first.

I have been around adoptive parents a long time- well, my whole life to be exact….

But this isn’t about MY parents- this is about the Adoptive Parents that I spend time around- I have something to say.

Y’all are some of the most hateful and selfish people I have ever encountered. Your self centeredness is astounding.

You use us adoptees- until we don’t please you anymore and then you discard us.

Throw us away.

Use us for our wisdom and guidance and life experience and then float off into YOUR world and don’t give us a second thought.

I have had adoptive parents gush over how much I have changed their life and how they are better people because of me.

I poured my life and pain out for them to learn and they ate it up and then disappeared when I didn’t serve them anymore.

That’s why I almost closed my FB account- I sick 🤒 of seeing them selfishly not give back to the community that have given them so much.

And let’s not talk about the APs that are total assholes. I’m saving that story for when they decide to resurface and claim to be teachers of anti-racism….

You don’t get that title ever again… i am watching and waiting…

One thing about me… I may forgive but I never forget and I am patient.

You did not get a free pass at me and I ain’t done with you yet

Yep… call me petty.

I still am the Queen of Petty. Never forget that.

As for the rest of y’all- especially white adoptive parents.

Get it together.
