Do you think I will ever forget?

I am a survivor of forced adoption. The reality of my experience was that of coercion, trauma, secrecy, and a denial of my basic human right.

I had no chance and neither did my baby. That’s right MY BABY NOT YOURS. The decision to adopt was made for me, I said I wanted to keep my baby, but no one listened. My voice was taken away.

MY baby was taken from me because I was told I was unmarried and couldn’t possibly look after a child. If I cared about my unborn baby, I would give him up for adoption to a married couple who would give him a better life than what I could because they had more money than me.

I have led a life of secrecy, shame and constantly searching for my forever young baby.
