Consider your self acknowledged

06 March 2014, 19:08

Not all adopted children and children born to their biological parents get to experience an unconditional love and acceptance from their parents and it is my mission to let them know that they are important. 

We are not born a loving people but we learn to love through our parents and all those who contribute positively in our formative stages.  To miss love and acceptance in the early stages of life is to wound a child for years to come.

My daughter is strong willed, her smile lights up the world and the sparkle in her eye is full of hope.  The first thing she does in the morning when she climbs into my bed is wrap her little arms around my neck.  My son is a sensitive soul, his eyes are soft and his voice is velvet. 

He wakes me up with kisses on my face and wanting me to acknowledge him and it is an honor for me to be the one who lets them know they matter.

For a child who never found themselves because they either spent their early years in the system or never felt loved by their parents; I have faith that one day your emotional wounds will be healed.  Know that you are not alone.

It is also my hope that all adopted children and mothers who have given up their children for adoption will read this article and find peace.  It is a fearful thing to live out your life not knowing how the people raising your children are treating them and it is also equally fearful to wait years until you can find out why your parent gave you up for adoption.

Hang in there, there are many good people in this world that will help you mend your broken wings.

My question to these young leaders: Are they satisfied that their approach to leadership, their rhetoric, the thoughts and feelings they express, are placing them on the path to justice, joy and freedom which they wish to attain? Read more...

Men Are Trash: the movement

If you’re a man you’re probably reading this article because the title rubbed you off the wrong way. I want to start by saying MEN ARE TRASH – I used caps lock to seem extra intimidating because you know, I’m a woman ( joke).  Read more...

In the mid 1990s the people who approached me most often for advice, counsel and coaching were white males. Towards 2000 this changed and the majority were women, often black women, occupying mid to senior management positions.  Read more...

Dear Vanessa: who is African?

Sorry to rain on your parade. I won’t take much of your time. I’m sure you have more important things to muse over than some silly drivel from a black man. Now I’m going to ask a few questions that might just sound plain silly – or unwise. That shouldn’t surprise you, seeing that you think my type is reckless anyway. Read more...
