well, thank you for posting. That is one of my favorite paintings I have done. It still moves me deeply when looking at it.

Sometimes it helps to have an image depict the feelings that words just do not seem to do it justice.

Jasmine, it is beautiful, and so is your writing. As an adult adoptee, it completely resonated with me also.

The image is actually the time in my life when I was healing the abandonment, attachment wound. I could literally feel that pain in my chest, and yet as I was cleaning it out, I felt a deeper love, one I wasn't looking form. I keep wanting that deep connection from those who gave me up, but once I began to let go of the dream, I experienced love in a new way. Don't get me wrong I still struggle with this on a daily bases.
