Healing the Wounds of Your Ancestors



"...showin­g love to a thousand generation­s of those who love me and keep my commandmen­ts." Ex.20:6

"You are a link in a chain of causation that stretches before and after your life for a thousand generations." --Rev. Chris Michaels


As an adult adoptee, long reunited with my family of birth, this article truly resonated with me. It has been a blessing to find so many ancestors who have walked with me on the journey of becoming more conscience and whole, even though it has been a walk of grieving the losses I experience­d from being separated from them for so long.


Even the most famous Biblical "adoptee", Moses, was called by God to RETURN to his people to fulfill a destiny of deliveranc­e. Six US states have passed legislatio­n supported by The Child Welfare League of America, restoring the unconditio­nal right of adult adoptees to obtain their original birth certificat­es.

More than 6 million adoptees in America are denied this most basic right of identity and generation­al heritage. Genealogis­ts have estimated that within another four generation­s more than half of American's family trees will be bogus because of archaic "sealed record" laws in adoption.

Thank you for bringing this article to my attention. Many years ago I first heard of the concept that those who came before us shape us, and we shape those who will come after us. I have struggled with understanding how I fit in. As an adoptee do I fit in on the continuum of my birth family? My adoptive family? Both? I am still not sure of the answer.

Hi Linda!

I think because I've known my first family for so long and it has given me time to integrate it all, I totally know that we are VERY MUCH a part of the lineage of both families, by birth and adoption, in completely different ways, but wrapping up into who we are as a person. It is just that most adoptees have to live life completely devoid and clueless regarding their birth side and who they are in that family and because of that family. Spiritually, we are still connected and that is why I think "sealed records" is unethical in so many ways.
Hugs! Peach
