“The compact space under the lilac bushes provided a secure environment where the girls felt relaxed and comfortable. The close proximity of the seating arrangement facilitated intimacy, whispering, and the sharing of secrets—only then did Judith Romano decide to tell her girlfriends she was adopted.” –Judith Land, Adoption Detective, p. 281
The First Lilac Club was an exclusive group of friends who trusted each other with their most embarrassing moments and deepest secrets. Judy choreographed a short ceremony whereby each member promised to keep the location of the club hidden, and protect the privacy of its members. To commemorate its founding, the girls arranged a beautiful bouquet of spring flowers in a wicker basket as a symbol of their unity. A brightly colored butterfly on its first conspicuous, fluttering flight landed softly on the handle, and slowly fanned its wings as a symbol of joy, wonder, and transformation. After they agreed to the ideals of the club, Judy presented each girl with a single lilac flower as a symbol of their sisterhood.
The First Lilac Club was an instant success because it encouraged camaraderie, sisterhood, and bonding between members. The founding members were Judith’s only girlfriends who understood the emotional and spiritual passions that consumed her as a child. The girls became very comfortable sharing secrets with each other. Adoption was a favorite reoccurring topic that alerted Judy to the possibility of becoming an adoption detective when she grew up—to solve the mystery of her own adoption.
