I felt it was a God thing when we learned her name was similar to mine and her birthdate was the same day as her new sister.I was so happy and excited to finally meet Angie. She walked in with a hesitant smile. She was slightly shy but was acclimated quickly. The drive to the hotel hit her hard. She was sadly staring out the window realizing she was leaving siblings and everything she had ever known behind. We all felt her pain.
From the Graduate
Adoption to me means a fresh start by giving kids a second chance to have a normal life. Being adopted is a different and unique story that makes me different and unique. It has shaped me to want to help give others a second chance. Also, I have reconnected and visited with my older siblings, who were also adopted by other American families, which meant a lot to me. I have learned that it’s not where and how you came to be, it’s where you are headed.
Angie has worked at her first job for the last two years. She loves sports and played girls flag football all four years. After graduation, Angie will consider attending local community college to complete her fundamental courses before continuing to pursue a career in the medical field, possibly as a nurse or paramedic.
