{Romauld – URP}

Something of an…”ant hill kicker”
{justplainbryan – nonfluffypagans}

Growing *up* – it’ll never happen 7rin, you’re Peter Pan’s evil twin!

Quotes of note

Never explain – your friends do not need it, and your enemies will not believe you anyway.
Elbert Hubbard, US author (1856 – 1915)

Tact is just not saying true stuff. I’ll pass.

Abandoned to adoption at 7mths old. I didn’t have a bad adoption – my afamily are the best I could ever have chosen… but if I’d been able to choose, I’d’ve chosen to be aborted instead. At least then the lifetime of agony would’ve been over in minutes/hours/days, instead of the decades that I’ve been suffering for now.

Abandoned early 1973. Reunited late 2009.

Adoption – because “legalised child abandonment” just doesn’t bring in the punters.
