Lies Lies and Some more Lies

It’s just getting to the point where any official contact I have with the official channels just plays with my head for some amount of time after the fact.

A simple example from Thursday last: A kind friend secures my long awaited Baptism Cert for me in Dublin. It was anticipated by me because in the absence of a Birth Cert, It was the connecting thread linking me back to my Birth Mother. Well, that’s what I was told by a senior Social Worker from the Adoption Board.

Yet when I got this elusive document, it was shot through with inconsistencies in relation to the reassurance that had been offered to me on the phone from the Adoption board: In short, no names and no details that in anyway confirmed certain facts about my Birth identity for me. The hope that I ┬áthat I could somehow decipher my Birth Father’s name was exploded. Well it’s hard to decipher a name when there is none actually writen down! – yet another inconsistent “fact”. it seems like the truth is a moveable variable to these people.

Anyway, I guess it’s back to the core point. I want my files. Why do I have to even ask for something that is so very much mine. Why does anyone have to ask????

Though I do like jigsaws, when it comes to my own identity, I don’t . I am actually unwilling and unable to keep playing the game that the Adoption Authorities play with me. It’s one jigsaw puzzle that should never have happened in the first place.

    If I’m not being too nosey (and please forgive me if I am), but what precisely did your baptism cert contain – any names at all?

    I do not even know how I ended up right here, but I assumed this post
    was once good. I do not know who you are but certainly you’re going to a famous
    blogger in the event you are not already. Cheers!
