An idiom spoken to me during my search...unlike my birth records, the irony of its origin and double-meaning is not lost on me...or any adoptee.

Bend (Joseph) - Brandon Heath
Even though this has Spanish subtitles, the song is in English and the words are amazing.
From the story of Joseph, in the Bible, "Bend", recounts a beautiful truth. We are much
more than our family tree...and we can never be broken off from it either. We just "Bend".
Just like Joseph, we adoptees were miles from our roots, but
through mercy we survived. For a purpose. Love this song.
