The Writers Voice
Yes, always wondering, what my mother looked like! Did I get my singing voice from my dad? When young wondering and noticing that all other children looked like their parents, and I did not! When I was in school the ramifications of being adopted was overlooked when addressing issues of acting out in school and what not, for adoption had a stigma none would touch!
Yes, always feeling different, trying to come to terms with the deep-seated rejection I always felt.
Yes, a grand AA slogan, you're not alone!
I several years ago was compelled to write my story of heart entitled Letters To Carla..... it is to be released this November, a wellspring of sadness and pain resurfaced, as the portrait of an adopted man with all the trimmings was stapled to each page in rage, bewilderment and beauty.
For me it was necessary to meet my enemy upon parchment, and strike a blow for my side! Letters To Carla truly tells the tale so many of us have endured in seeming isolation, but remember, hope lingers always on the dawn of tomorrow for the searching man!
My few humble words are designed to build hope and strong hearts, steeped in perseverance and value, knowing we all indeed do belong to someone... indeed is it not one another?
Feel free to communicate with me further if
I may be of any help or assistance to anyone of my brothers or sisters.
