#adopted families are real families

So I was named after my grandmother, my mom’s mom.


My dad and his twin, my uncle, were adopted from Scotland when they were young. For decades, they didn’t know much about where they came from, other than a city and a last name. They didn’t even know their bio mom’s first name. But in the past week, my uncle got in contact with someone who knew her. My grandmother, my dad’s mom.


I bear the name of both of my grandmothers and I had no idea until yesterday.

She was kind, too. Their adopted mother wasn’t kind, but Margaret was kind and loved.

You can’t tell me this isn’t fate.
