"Coming Out of The Fog." Adoptee Greeting Card: Each item becomes a bold and unique statement, and every true-to-life greeting card tells a story.

Front of Card: "Coming out of the fog about my adoption experience has been an agonizing journey."

Inside Card: "Thanks for not abandoning me, for listening to me for what seems like years, and for being on the journey with me. You mean more to me than you will ever know!"

This card is sentimental for so many reasons and can be gifted to adoptees or non-adoptees. I can't count how many people have crossed my path in the decade and a half I have been raising the roof on how it feels to be adopted, and they have intentionally sat with me, cried with me, and listened to me until they are blue in the face and my tears begin to dry up. I am so grateful for every person who has been there for me. I wouldn't be here right now if I didn't have them.

I know these big adoptee feelings can be a lot, so this card was created as a thank you for all the VIPs in my life who cared enough to listen without judgment and put on a hat of understanding when it comes to learning about the side of the coin that's almost always ignored in the adoption constellation, the adoptee.

I hope you love this card as much as I do! I am printing a million and mailing them out to all my friends, aka family!

Fun fact: Why is all the emporium merchandise a dollar amount and 21 cents? I was twenty-one years old when I found and met my birth mother. It was the best day of my life and a symbolic experience in my adoption journey. Sadly, I met her once, and she shut me out forever. The best day of my life was the worst because I never heard from her again.

Twenty-one years of agony passed, hoping she would change her mind. But she never did. Surviving this abandonment and rejection has been one of the most harrowing experiences of my life, but I made it. At one point, I was convinced I would die from a broken heart, but today, my heart is healed, and I feel whole. I am here to share my story and let other adoptees know they aren't alone and their feelings are normal for a not-normal situation. Nothing is normal about being separated from our biological parents at the beginning of life.
