Adoption sparks our private passions and raises our consciousness at every stage of our lives. Attempts to rationalize our thoughts are characterized as a continuous struggle between conscience, logic and reason in favor of the passions of temptations. Adoption galvanizes our perspectives of morality, stimulates social discourse, and triggers opinionated criticism of others. The conscience-driven side of our personality bounces back and forth while striving to discover a balance between legal principles and conventional wisdom.
Most individuals affected by adoption are passionate about their beliefs. They may seek the will of almighty God for their immortal souls as they follow moral doctrines with a religious conviction. Believing that conventionality is not morality and self-righteousness is not religion, the determined Christian has a strong conscience, impassioned self-respect, and strong moral beliefs. Others declare that narrow human doctrines may be substituted for the world redeeming creed of God. The struggle for individuals becomes which opinion is best to adhere to, and how to find a middle ground between the two when their passions go too far.
The battle over the fate and disposition of orphans disposed by war, disease, pestilence, famine, abandonment and societal collapse has been waged by human populations on a global scale for the millennia. Legal and social methods to prevent the abuse of children have been fought by the passionately spirited in churches, courthouses, theatrical political arenas and the United Nations. And yet, there has never been an universal consensus or an international agreement on what is best for all. Ultimately, the decisions that matter most are the ones made by individuals. Birth mothers and fathers who abandon their children may eventually regret their decision and suffer in silence later in life. Some adoptive parents exhibit a genuine sense of compassion and natural love of children and that is why they adopt, but there are others who will never comprehend the profoundness of the primal wound that many adoptees carry with them. These adoptive parents convey negative actions onto their adopted child because they are nefarious by nature. Consequently, there is a conditional kind of love that develops, and they think of their adopted child as their possession, and love will not grow and mature. In an unconditional relationship, the child is loved for who he or she is, which fosters an ever growing love relationship between the parent and child. Orphaned, fostered and adopted children, many of whom suffer the nightmarish effects of the primal wound and a negative sense of genealogical bewilderment, must learn to overcome the past by striving for a better self-image as the key to a better life.
I have always valued freedom and independence. I like being my own person and making my own decisions. Throughout each distinct stage of life, I have always rebelled against individuals who tell me what to do, how to think, or try to establish some form of power and control over me, but never with the idea of overthrowing authority, violating human or divine code, or causing rebellion at home. It is my philosophy, that as we pass through life, we must continuously seek to discover the middle ground between our passionate and conscience-driven sides, until we reach the conclusion that fostering a belief in atonement and forgiveness is the path that leads to a happy life characterized by romanticism.
