"You Are Enough Please Don't Leave" Greeting Card: Each item becomes a bold and unique statement, and every true-to-life greeting card tells a story.

Front of Card: "Smile through the pain, separation trauma is real, grief that last forever, love isn't enough, I'll miss you forever, you are enough, unbreakable bonds, I'm sad, help me, please don't leave, I'll miss you everyday, the agencies won't tell you, inconsolable grief, move on, get over it, brokenhearted, all I need is you, you are worthy, I love you so much, I cry for you everyday, please don't leave, where are you?, I need you, please."

Inside Card: "You can do this. You are enough. How can I help?."

How in the world does our society support the separation of mothers and babies (adoption) more than they support and keep them together? This card is sentimental for many reasons, especially for anyone who knows and loves someone considering adoption for their baby. We should all be supporting mothers and babies, staying together, and doing whatever we can to help them.

Adoption causes extreme harm, and we must start normalizing these difficult conversations. I hope this card is a stark reality of the harm of separation and that it encourages a mother to keep her baby. What if we all helped the mothers keep their babies? I hope this card sparks some difficult conversations, and I hope more mothers are supported in keeping their babies. Please send it to every mother considering adoption and let them know an adoptee created this card. Please don't leave!

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.
