#431 -- Milestones in blogging

One Small Sacrifice photo
A blog about American Indian Adoptees was my vision and the history of the Indian Adoption Projects was finally unburied...   
Four years ago in November, this blog was born and the history of the Indian Adoption Projects was uncovered in my memoir ONE SMALL SACRIFICE.

On this anniversary, I wanted to share some milestones with you! This is my 431th post. It’s hard to wrap my head how this one little blog has had over 64,000 visits and over 2 million LIKES on Facebook.
The most important thing for me to say is: Thank you. Megwetch! WaDo!

Thank you for coming back week after week, reading, commenting, and sharing this blog. That means the world to me.

Thank you for spending your hard-earned cash on my memoir One Small Sacrifice and my new anthology TWO WORLDS.  You told your friends, talked about it on Facebook, and visited my Book Pages. You showed me my vision was not wrong.

It’s not every day I get to say this - THANK YOU.
To recap the life of this blog, I thought I'd highlight some of the biggest milestones of the past four years.

You are not alone

You are not alone

To Veronica Brown

Veronica, we adult adoptees are thinking of you today and every day. We will be here when you need us. Your journey in the adopted life has begun, nothing can revoke that now, the damage cannot be undone. Be courageous, you have what no adoptee before you has had; a strong group of adult adoptees who know your story, who are behind you and will always be so.

As the single largest unregulated industry in the United States, adoption is viewed as a benevolent action that results in the formation of “forever families.”
The truth is that it is a very lucrative business with a known sales pitch. With profits last estimated at over $1.44 billion dollars a year, mothers who consider adoption for their babies need to be very aware that all of this promotion clouds the facts and only though independent research can they get an accurate account of what life might be like for both them and their child after signing the adoption paperwork.

Why tribes do not recommend the DNA swab

Rebecca Tallbear entitled: “DNA, Blood, and Racializing the Tribe”, bearing out what I only inferred:

Detailed discussion of the Bering Strait theory and other scientific theories about the population of the modern-day Americas is beyond the scope of this essay. However, it should be noted that Indian people have expressed suspicion that DNA analysis is a tool that scientists will use to support theories about the origins of tribal people that contradict tribal oral histories and origin stories. Perhaps more important,the alternative origin stories of scientists are seen as intending to weaken tribal land and other legal claims (and even diminish a history of colonialism?) that are supported in U.S. federal and tribal law. As genetic evidence has already been used to resolve land conflicts in Asian and Eastern European countries, this is not an unfounded fear.
