"So Much Complex Grief" Adoption Greeting Card: Each piece of clothing becomes a bold and unique statement, and every item tells a story.

Outside Card: So Much Complex Grief

Inside Card: "I see you in pain, trying to navigate your adoption journey the best you can. You have a million reasons to be grieving, so please be easy on yourself. I want you to know I'm here for you! I'm listening, and I care."

This adoption greeting card speaks to many adoptees and others in the adoption constellation. Our non-adopted friends and family sometimes can't fully understand the journey because they aren't adopted themselves. Sometimes, it's hard to find the right words to say, so this card is a great addition to the adoption constellation and for anyone who knows or loves an adoptee. It's also for anyone who acknowledges the loss from separation from our biological families or who has lost from adoption. If we're being honest, loss is at the core root of adoption, and it deserves to be acknowledged and validated.

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.
