Conquering Stress with Writing

I need to write & I’m not alone.

Roland Millward

I have been told “you are special” my entire life, but I never paid it any mind since everyone is special in God’s eyes.

I was born to a very young couple that were madly in love but couldn’t take care of me and my brother. At two and a half months old I was a very sick baby and my mom was living out of her car. She couldn’t afford milk formula and said I didn’t keep it in my tummy anyway. She decided adoption was the best way to give me a chance in life. That’s what made me special, or at least I was told.

  1. It’s amazing story! And I think you’re very positive person. I’m also thinking about adopting baby, I would like to have bigger family, but my doctors told me, that another one pregnancy can weaken me too much. I have heart problems, that’s why they told me that.

  2. This is a great story. Writing has always been a sort of therapy for everyone. It is a way we all can express our emotions. Adoption is a beautiful thing and every child that has been adopted are blessings. Thanks for sharing your story.


  3. Wow.. It was so Beautiful and emotional
    Thank for Sharing this lovely Story with us. With every story like this you change a bit about how I look at life and how I should be strong and positive in challenging times. I’ve got a full life ahead of me and whatever I do and decide will be a little bit affected by this!

  4. I think children who do get adopted are special because sometimes they are coming from really scary situations. I think your story will resonate with others who have gone through the same thing. Adoption is beautiful.


  5. I really do not know what to say! Your story is really inspirational. I started my blog for something else, to help new companies. But I do write in my spare time and just note my thoughts and feeling down. I have kept my emotions inside too much and it did affect my health but writing things down has really help especially when it comes to my conscience!
