The Powerful Impact of Adoption
In the early 1920s, my maternal grandparents lost their firstborn son, Ira, when he was four days old. My grandmother grieved the loss of her child hard and was deeply pained. Sometime over the next year, my grandfather, ever trying to problem solve, visited an orphanage in Central Pennsylvania and arrived home with a one year old boy, my Uncle Hank. The family was open about the adoption; there were never any secrets. My Uncle Hank was the exciting family member, moving to California and opening a marketing company. He brought a sheen of glamour to the family.
Flash forward to the 1950s. My Mom was a first grade teacher. One of her students was a child in the foster care system and his foster mother died. That was the genesis of how my brother came into our family. My parents had hearts big enough to recognize that genetic ties are not solely determinative of defining family.
Because of the strong example set by my parents and grandparents, I chose to adopt my firstborn son. I knew that my family could be build in any way I chose.
Maybe one day my children will choose unconventional ways to build their families.
