Adoptee Forum: Gratitude 4/23
A topic familiar to many adoptees is the idea of "gratitude". Gratitude and thankfulness are, for the most part, positive emotions. Many adoptees feel genuine and honest gratitude. At the same time, too often adoptees are burdened with an "obligation" to feel grateful. During this forum, we will be exploring the concept of gratitude and how we related to it through our shared experience as adoptees. The forum will be facilitated by Adam Goodman, who is currently writing an article on this topic for PlanAMag.com.
