What Do You Mean I Was Adopted?

Were you adopted? Did you have a similar experience? Do you face issues with identity?

Ms. Burns learned of her own adoption when she was a teenager growing up in the Middle East, and it came as a shock.

Do I Matter? An Adoptee’s Perspective through Her Relationships

I’ve dedicated these blog posts to sharing [...]

What Client’s Say

Carina Burns has looked within herself, faced her demons and developed the courage to share her journey of love, perceived betrayal, angst, and re-generative love. Innocence to anger to forgiveness to sharing. I first knew Carina before she learned of her adoption.  Carina was a typical, carefree teenager enjoying life. Living the ‘good life’ of a third-culture expatriate kid.  Only recently have I reconnected with her.  She has quite a story, a gift she shares with passion.  Carina Burns is truly ‘Becoming’ in every way imaginable. And, by the way, having tissue handy while reading her story will help.
