Forever Jake Day

“Forever Jake Day” is a celebration of the day my friend’s adoption of his child became final. Every year, on that special day, the family celebrates Jake’s forever addition to their family.

Both my brother and my sister were adopted. I was the surprise biological child my parents got four years after adopting my sister, their second adopted child.  As a result of growing up with two adopted siblings, I am very moved by this gesture. I think many children  who are adopted have a little void inside them. The pain of wondering why they were let go, who their biological parents are, and by extension, who they really are, can be a difficult lifelong question for them. To celebrate “Forever Day” is such a lovely balance for the adopted kiddo. It shows the child how valuable they are and reminds the adoptive parents to be grateful for every minute. Beautiful. I love it.
