My own lovingly designed t.shirts for adoptees with style, and available at the Post-Adoption Charity CafePress store. :)
The first image I created was the lovely nRFU that points out we’re not Rainbow Farting Unicorns…
…which was created after yet another day of bouncing my head off a brick wall trying to educate people as to the HORRORS of adoption – even in a “good” or “successful” adoption (however you want to define those terms :p).
There’s only, currently, two images available (not least because I am so inartistic that I have trouble drawing stick peeps!) in the Post Adoption Charity store, the second of which shares with the world the absolute TRUTH about why adoption hurts so damn much. To the point that I think if we could shift paradigms and remove the expectation of gratitude – there’d be a lot less screwed up adoptees. Thus, the t.shirt I spend the vast amount of my waking time wearing is the Adoption Loss quote…
“Adoption Loss is the only trauma in the world where the victims are expected by the whole of society to be grateful”
– The Reverend Keith C. Griffith, MBE
Feel free to purchase, and any money made on the store is staying there until I’ve worked out how to adequately design this place so that it looks a tad more professional than it’s currently looking.
