The cultural narrative of adoption leaves very little space for an adopted person to share their personal experience, and when we do we are often met with resistance or shut down completely. The reality in adoption is uncomfortable for people to hear, but it’s even more uncomfortable for those of us who live being adopted. .

The adoption triad. 🔺
 I’m sure you have heard this phrase before. It symbolizes birth family, adoptive family, and adoptee. +
+
The most important part of the triad is the child placed for adoption. This child will be bonded and joined forever with both birth and adoptive parents. Adopted children will have traits of both families and will always have a connection to each in a deeper way than any other member of the triad could understand. They will grow to learn how to navigate through life from their adoptive parents and about their heritage through the conversations or stories of their birth parents. If an adoption is closed, the child will still hold this connection through physical and natural traits. The adoption triad is the triangle that binds an adoption story together for life. +
+
Banning and I are both adoptees, I’m an adoptive mama, and I’m wishing I had more pictures with his birth mother, she completes our triangle. +

I want to reintroduce myself 👋 I’m Lacey I am 29 years old. I myself am an adoptee. I was adopted as an Infant. I personally have had a wonderful adoption and family and feel extremely blessed my birth mother placed me with my family. I had such a great experience that my entire life I wanted to adopt a child myself. So 6 months ago my husband and I became parents to an amazing baby boy Banning, his birth mother bravely and selflessly places him with us, and we are so honored we get to love on him forever. When I speak on this page I am  speaking from my experience as an adoptee, I’M NOT SPEAKING ON BEHALF OF ALL ADOPTEES. I’m hoping that my experience can help your family understand and navigate through your own adoption journeys. There are no two adoptions journeys the same. I believe adoption rocks, and is beautiful, it gave me my family (mom, dad, siblings, etc.), and my son. That doesn’t mean there is no loss for others, and not everyone feels the same (adoptees, birth Mother’s, adoptive parents) I personally choose to look at it as I get lots of love! Love my from my family and birth family. On this page I speak as a adoptee and an adoptive mother. I try and tell of my journey to Banning, but not his story, and go into details, that is HIS story to tell not mine. He is my son, so I also post about my love for him, and our mother son relationship. My goal on here is to share my own experience and hope in some way it helps the adoption community.

With that said, I am getting a little tired of the people dismissing what I have to say like I’m not an adoptee myself, or I can’t voice how I feel. Adoption is all about the adoptee! Listen to yours whether you are an adoptive parent or birth mother. I’m tired of being told how I feel isn’t right, or that Adoption doesn’t rock, and the list goes on and on. Talking about adoption can bring triggers for everyone involved, but everyone is entitled to their own opinion and experience. Let’s be kind. This is a safe space for everyone.

10 yrs ago on this day my life changed forever.. I still can never find the words to describe all my thoughts it’s definitely been an emotional rollercoaster. Looking at these pictures are bringing back so many memories. .The first time I saw and hugged my birthmom I’m so glad I have those memories to look back on. I think it’s important to recognize adoption is not all sunshine and rainbows ..it’s hard ..really hard. Also it doesn’t mean “I’m not grateful and don’t love my adoptive family”.. I think it’s really just about finding your complete self. The good The bad and The ugly. .
.
Anyway here’s to 10yrs of finding my Birthmom .Birthdad. And all my family who I love and have changed my life forever! 💕 10 yrs ago on this day my life changed forever.. i still can never find the words to describe all my thoughts it’s definitely been an emotional rollercoaster. looking at these pictures are bringing back so many memories. .the first time i saw and hugged my birthmom i’m so glad i have those memories to look back on. i think it’s important to recognize adoption is not all sunshine and rainbows ..it’s hard ..really hard. also it doesn’t mean “i’m not grateful and don’t love my adoptive family”.. i think it’s really just about finding your complete self. the good the bad and the ugly. .

This is Oakley. She is strong, smart, and spunky (and obviously super cute!), and even though she needs a wheelchair, she doesn’t let anything stop her!
-
I am so honored to have met her and her big, beautiful family! Her mom hoped that I could inspire and be a role model for her with our similar adoption stories, but she has been through more than any little girl should have to experience. She has inspired ME to work even harder and overcome all obstacles. Meeting adoptees like Oakley is truly the reason why I do what I do.

(also, if someone wants to cast her in a movie where she plays a younger me, she told me she wants to be a STAR, soooo... 😉⭐️) This is oakley. she is strong, smart, and spunky (and obviously super cute!), and even though she needs a wheelchair, she doesn’t let anything stop her!

“In mainstream media, a lot of times when a character has been adopted, that is their only defining characteristic. In SFR, being adopted is only one aspect of Koko’s identity. She does not neatly fit a stereotype of a specific culture.”

I have had such an incredible month on set with @damnwriteoriginals thanks to this woman. ❤️ She is writing stories that elevate women of color, and she inspires me daily.
