Apology to the McPhails’

Dear Charles & Dayna McPhail,

Thirteen years here I stand, we all stand, from what was somewhat of a disaster of a reunion between a biological daughter and her birthparents. As I had known I wanted to meet you all my life and with the pressure I was placing on my adoptive parents at the time, they felt they could not wait any longer. I do not want you to think it was solely their idea for me to meet you at such a young age, but I am partly to blame as well.

If I could go back, I would have waited till I was at least in my mid-twenties and much more capable of handling such a situation. I however, cannot go back and change what happened, except to move forward. To realize we are not family, we will never be mother and daughter, etc.

I will always love you though, that will never change.

I am 28 years old, from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. I was adopted at the age of two due to being born premature with a brain condition unknown as Hydrocephalus. Today, I continue to battle both physical and mental health issues, but in my spare time I blog about my journey in life for others to read. All you can do is take life one day at a time. Nothing more, nothing less.
