FULL MOON PRAYER by Rumi
What in your life is Calling you,
When all the noise is silenced,
The meetings adjourned..
The lists laid aside,
And the Wild Iris blooms
In the dark forest...
What still pulls on your Soul?
Are you a mother who lost a child to adoption?
Does your (now adult) child call out to your soul?
Are you too afraid to answer that call?
Please, PLEASE, do not give in to that fear.
Yes, it is hard to face the loss and grief that has been buried for so very long.
Yes, it is frightening to let the world know that which you were told to never speak of again.
It is so very worth it!
Your world may fall apart ~ only to find it's way back together again ~ this time whole.
This time with no secrets. This time with answers. No more wondering, worrying. No more fear.
For it's true,
The truth shall set you free.
Your child deserves to know their answers. Just as you do.
Deserves to see your face ~ if only once. Just as you do to see theirs.
Most states do not give adoptees their birth information.
No ~ the adoption agency lied. They are not given their information when they turn 18.
No ~ the adoption agency lied. You will not be breaking the law by looking for them.
Do you feel the pull of your soul?
Do you yearn to know if your child is still alive? Happy? Healthy?
If you can't search, make yourself "findable".
