Dual Purpose.

This blog has just become dual purpose.  I have given the name and address of it to Bubbly’s family in Ghana.  Not my intention for it, but a useful purpose.  Sadly, some of Bubbly’s family was told that she died recently.  I don’t really understand how, or why, this happened.  I can hazard a guess, since there is a man in Ghana who used to facilitate adoptions that seems to like to tell this to adoptive and birth families alike.

FPD and I have been in contact with Bubbly’s family many times over the last 48 hours.  The trust that is destroyed by a lie like this is unreal, and it hurts our daughter’s relationship with a family she might want to have a relationship in the future.  For real, hasn’t she been through enough?  I have photographed Bubbly many times since she arrived home and have chronicled her little journey here.  Hopefully, her family will be able to get to an internet cafe and take a peek.

For any of you who have children from Bubbly’s former orphanage, and haven’t heard from your children’s birth families in awhile or even ever, it might be time to check in.  You might be surprised at what they have been told.  Bubbly’s adoption is not in jeopardy.  Bubbly is a legal citizen of the United States.  Bubbly’s adoption does NOT need fixing.  I have told Bubbly’s family many times that they don’t need to pay money to correct any of her documents.  Bubbly was readopted many months ago.  A judge in the United States decided everything in Ghana was done correctly.  It is finished.  I am finished with it, and all of this, as well.

I am not finished with our Bubbly though.  She is happy.  She is healthy.  She wants to tell her birth family…”I am fine.”

Bubbly chose this picture herself.
who is sad that she even has to write this post.

  1. Just when you think you can finally take a deep breath…I’ve wondered more than once what has been told to the birthfamily about us. It’s probably worse than I imagine!
