52: Shanae – “ Believe Your Truth – You Belong Here “

Shanae remembers the age of 9 and 1/2 so vividly. This time in her life was very challenging and brought forth many traumas that disrupted her life. This life-changing moment gave way to her ‘gift’ of writing her feelings in a journal. This was her “ coping” method. Shanae faced doubts of her ‘ truth’ by the adults in her circle.

As an expectant mother, she faced challenges and vulnerabilities in her life. She faced the flop – flop of support from family. Many perceptions of adoption were from what she watched on “ TV’. She is focused on healing herself and her son. Shanae’s message to birthmothers is “ You Belong Here”

    You’re amazing, Shanae, for having gone through all you have and still being able to complete your education, including college. You should be proud of yourself for having accomplished all you have amidst all of the struggles. I wish the best for you in the future.
