Touched... I'm not  

Saturday, 27 October 2007

Do you ever wonder who invented some of the words or phrases used when it comes to adoption. I do, maybe I just need to get a life!

Some words are damn right offensive and some... Well, some are away with the fairies. The adopted child is a 'gift'. When I think of the word gift I think of wrapping paper and if I'm giv
en a gift I immediately shake it. Not a very good idea if the 'gift' is a child. I've yet to see a child in wrapping paper, haha, and I cant imagine myself shaking a child.
'Touched' by adoption. When I think of the word touch I think of Touched by an Angel (god I love that program!) or touched in the head, or even the touch of a butterflies wing on my face on a hot summers day. 'Touched' by adoption is something I don't feel. Battered, whacked, splattered, yes, those I do feel, but no, not touched.

    One of my favorites was that my daughter was a
    "gift from God."
    Thank you very much, she was a gift from me. Only because my parents were too ashmamed of a 15 year old daughter and a granddaughter.

    Hiya, well its national adoption week next week and all the nice sugar coated words will be spewing out of the mouths of the TV presenters. I think we should hold a competition for the most pathetic ignorant words used.
    Good to hear of you, anyway, hope your ok.
    love tina
