Hello! This is Little Chicken.
I am adopted from Ethiopia.
I know how it feels to be away from the place where you belong. You know something? When I was in Ethiopia, I wanted to come to America very badly.
My birth mom passed away when I was six months old, and my dad left after that, so for the next ten years I lived with my aunt. I waited for two years to be adopted, then I was brought to America.
I hated America so much. There were a few reasons why. The new family I got...let's just say they were not the right fit for me. I guess they just never understood me, they didn't understand the stuff I had been through.
I did not know how to be in a family. I had never been in a big family with rules, I was just on my own for ten years. The stuff I went through in Ethiopia was wrong. The way I learned everything was really wrong.
I was even mad at God. I blamed him for taking my Ethiopian mom away, and I blamed him for having to come to America. Nothing worked out with my first adoptive family the way I wanted it to.
I don't think you want to know all the details anyway, so I moved to a new family in Montana instead. Do you want to know something really important? I don't have to blame God anymore. I think God brought me here for a reason, and that is a very good thing. So every one of you who is adopted, I don't think being adopted is a bad thing. You just need to give it time and BELIEVE IN JESUS...the one who you can trust is him. So, I say every one of you should believe in God.
I hope you enjoy my new blog.
