My Favorite First Lines are Taken for Novels - help me choose one for NaNoWriMo - give me a reason to WRITE!
"I didn't have a farm in Africa and my name is not Ismael."
"I thought we were adopting from China with an agency, but the gods laughed and dropped me in Nepal alone."
"There is no such thing as an 'accidental adoption.' "Oops, honey, the pen slipped over 35 original copies of numerous documents demanding your original signature in front of a notary." No, it does not happen that way. And every adoption story is different. The story I have to tell, has remained locked in my head in hope that my daughter's birth country would modify their policy and make their children available to loving homes. But seventeen years have passed and nothing has changed. It is time to tell my story.
"Never underestimate what a mother will do for her child. Conception is different in the world of adoption - it begins when the decision to adopt is made."
"They called me the crazy white lady with the brown baby. Even 'Indian Grandma,' local matriarch of the home of two physicians and their your daughter, finally greeted me with "You have a brown baby!" This, after passing her for almost 4 years on our morning walks - my Nordic son and I with no return "Good Morning" or "Hello."
