About Me:
♥• Kinship Adoptee • Mother • Wife • ♥
⚜ 🄽🄴🅆 🄾🅁🄻🄴🄰🄽🅂 🅁🄾🄾🅃🅂 ⚜
Proud of my Isleños & Cajun ancestry.
•·················•·················•
I was born in Metairie, Louisiana in 1980.
My paternal family was from Louisiana.
My maternal family was from Arkansas.
I was raised by my maternal grandparents.
I grew-up across three different states;
Arkansas, Louisiana, and West Virginia.
I now call south Alabama home {sweet home}.

•·················•·················•

• Heritage Highlights •
My ancestral ties to the Louisiana Isleños {Canary Islanders} are the surnames Gonzales {Island of Tenerife } & Perez {Agüimes on the island of Las Palmas}. My father was the 4th generation of his Gonzales line to be born in Louisiana. My most direct ties to the Acadians {French Acadie/Cajuns} come from the surnames Part {Parr} & Melanson via my paternal grandmother. 2% of my DNA is Filipino, from my 3rd great grandfather; Romaldo Delacruz who's wife was an Irish immigrant.

My maternal familial connections to Arkansas (near the MO. state line) are the surnames Felts & Cherry, this side of my family DNA consists of mostly British, English, Irish, and Swiss ancestry.

🕊🕊🕊My Mother's Memorial 🕊🕊🕊
My maternal grandmother was also my adoptive mother. She would often tell me that I was her "chosen child" and said that although I did not grow beneath her heart, I was forever in it. My adoptive mother did her best for all of her children. May she now finally be at peace. 🕊

•·················•·················•

My biological mother chose to remove herself from me. I was left with her parents during my infancy while she remained largely absent from my entire life. I deeply felt the sting of abandonment & feeling unloved by my "real mom". I knew next-to-nothing about my father or paternal family until I was in my late 30's. I am thankful for the love that I received from my adoptive parents, but I am saddened they were not able to be grandparents to me. I was expected to always be grateful, no one ever openly acknowledged the experience from my perspective. As an adult, I've taken back MY story. I was fortunate to finally get to meet my biological father when I was 43.

•·················•·················•

All children deserve a loving mother, but not all children get that lucky. Remember, when a person shows you who they are, believe them... Actions truly do speak louder than words.

To other kinship adoptees and/or abandoned children;
my inbox is always open, if you need to talk to someone who understands.
