Day # 1: I am Thankful for Being Adopted

My bother Adam and I, were adopted by the Schumacher's and Provenzale's, back in the early 1980's. Being adopted offers unique perspectives on life. Its an immense blessing and at times challenging for both the adopted children and parents. 

 Non the less, I am very thankful for the upbringing and family that surrounds me. My mother, Carole Provenzale, provided me with some of the best foundational wisdom any child, daughter and woman could ask for. My father is always there, ready to offer assistance with life and reassurance when things seem questionable. 

A new chapter is about to begin, and that will include returning to Colombia to discover my original heritage and native roots. To be continued...


To all my fellow adoptees, Happy National Adoption Month!

It is very special to be chosen, Laura. Thank you for sharing about your wonderful family. I look forward to hearing about your discoveries too.

Laura - I did not have a clue. I remember your mom here on active rain, she was a figure here. It was an unusual move when you took over her account after her passing, and it was so very nice of you to keep it alive.

Yes, you have your own voice, but for every one of us, who remember your mom, every time I see you here, it reminds me of your mom.

Best of luck to you

Hi Laura - no wonder you have such strength and awareness in your life. You've met challenges at an earlier age, and in a different way than many have. I expect your trip to Columbia will bring even more awareness to you and open your heart even more.

Good morning, Laura... adoptive parents are very special because you know they really wanted their children and that it wasn't some "accident" that they had them. I hope you find what you are looking for in Colombia and that it enriches your already rich life full of family love.

Laura Cerrano What a touching peek into a very private part of your life. You were so fortunate to have such giving people willing to 'step-up' and give you the support and life's boost that you are sure to pass along.

Very cool Laura Cerrano .  Adoptive couples save babies from the murder of abortion. Thank GOD your biological mom put you up for adoption and thank God the  Schumacher's and Provenzale's. I also thank God for you!
