Hello Readers! I have some uber exciting news!! There is amazing group of international adoptee writers/bloggers called TransracialEyes.com. I have known about them for years, and when I was younger I always thought it would be so cool to write with them one day.
Well.. Last week they offered me a spot with them! One of the contributors Daniel Twittered me about my blog, just being cool and supportive. He asked if I had heard of TRE and I had. Then he extended his virtual hand saying that if I was ever interested in being a contributor to let him know. I jumped saying of course I would! A couple days ago it was made official, and I have my first post up now!! This is such a huge honor, and so truly important and monumental for me.
I would have blogged about this when it happened, but I was so excited to be working with such an amazing group of adoptees. They have been heroes and leaders in the international adoptee community for years, and I'm so wowed to be linked with them! I've been out a couple times to have mini celebrations with friends. Nothing big just meeting up for drinks and desert one night in Uptown, and the next day my upstate friends and I met up for lunch at The Tea Garden.
Tomorrow a bunch of us are getting together for Sunday drunk bowling, and I'm kind of hoping someone will be like "Let's have a toast for Morgan!" I'm 99% sure that won't happen, Even after I further explain what this all means to me. For the most part my Caucasian friends don't really get what a big deal this is.. Or they're too wrapped up in themselves to recognize.. And that really hurts and is uber sucky..
Most of my friends are Caucasian and don't get how important being an adoptee is to me. Uh, but I'm not going to let them get to me though! Because weirdly my adoptive mom does get that this is huge for me! She wants to go downtown and celebrate! And for once I think it's actually for me and not just an excuse for her to go out. I told my dad about it myself, pretty much the most we've spoken since his emotional breakdown last year. He also doesn't get that his is big for me and my blog. But I'm not letting that get to me either!
This is so huge, and wonderful, and I'm just in awe of it! Ahhh!! I have a bunch more to share about the new therapy I'm working on, and this amazing adoptee quote from MTV, but those are for other posts! And don't think I've forgotten, I still have a third eating disorder post to write!
Please go check out the site. Not so much to read my post, but to check out all the other bloggers. They're really spectacular folks! It really is an honor to linked with such fantastic leaders in our community; I am floored.
