My bother Adam and I, were adopted by the Schumacher's and Provenzale's, back in the early 1980's. Being adopted offers unique perspectives on life. Its an immense blessing and at times challenging for both the adopted children and parents.
Non the less, I am very thankful for the upbringing and family that surrounds me. My mother, Carole Provenzale, provided me with some of the best foundational wisdom any child, daughter and woman could ask for. My father is always there, ready to offer assistance with life and reassurance when things seem questionable.
A new chapter is about to begin, and that will include returning to Colombia to discover my original heritage and native roots. To be continued...
To all my fellow adoptees, Happy National Adoption Month!
