In continuation of our Mother's Day-themed posts, Red Thread Broken eloquently writes about the topic of ambiguous loss, which so many adoptees face throughout their lives.
"Though the knowledge of ambiguous loss helps me articulate how I may be feeling, I still am in many ways baffled by the task of honoring and remembering my first family with no memories. I’ve come to realize that just like there is no closure to so many of my lifelong questions, there may be no clear resolution on how to best honor my first family. I can try to retain my original culture, a link that connects us. I can try to speak the words of my mother tongue, so we can communicate if we ever meet."
