Hey Fellow Bastardettes and Bastards!
Look what I found in today’s VIsible Magazine. My essay Gotcha Day: Turning the Private into the Public Actually I knew it was scheduled for today, but I waited for the Big Day to announce it.. Check it out.
Gotcha sounds like trapping a rat under the stove or grabbing up the last flat-screen TV on Black Friday at Wal-Mart. It’s a predatory term. A scary term. A cheap term. A violent term especially today with kids in cages at the Mexican border being siphoned into the Christian adoption system. Gotcha relates adoption to aggressive consumerism; and that consumerism to a public act of virtue.
And please please please ,check out Visible. It’s wonderful venue for adoptee opinion, stories, art and more, especially for #NAAM2019. Thank you editor-in chief Stephanie Trenka
