The adoption community are often approached for media and research participation requests. For many in the adoption community, we tread a fine line between exposer that adds to much needed adoption awareness and being used as subject of other peoples intrigue or projects (including inside the adoption community itself). It really depends on the person as some feel their adoption is personal (rightly so) and choose to keep it private… while others feel they have a duty to have their stories heard.
Personally I have done all of the things I listed in this comic (and then some). I have meet so many great people because of it, but I also have learnt a lot of lessons and I am much more choosey over what I become involved in. Still, good to know I have a supposedly interesting life.
