About Jem

I am an adoptee who was adopted back into my family of origin as an adult.
I am a wife, mom, sister, aunt, friend, and RN.
I am an adoption SURVIVOR.

I am so much more than my adoption and yet it is impossible to remove adoption’s far reaching effects on my life thus far.

I believe the more aware I am of the trauma perpetrated upon me as an infant and child the more I can see its grip on my life.

Once you see you cannot unsee and so I am on a journey of healing and self discovery. Come along with me …
