Please Remember.....

A message from internationally adopted kids.

Please Remember….
If I am sad,  If I am angry,  If I am rocking,  If I am having a meltdown,  If I am having a tantrum…

I lost my Culture
I lost my Country
I lost my Language
I lost my Home
I lost my Caregivers
I lost my Friends
I lost my Bed

And I am only 7 years old….
Please Remember.


  1. Aww...that made me cry. I can't imagine what it is like for these children to lose everything and have no clue what what they've gained. Our little guy will be 6 when we bring him home and this has crossed my mind-how he will handle all the loss to come? Thank you for sharing your journey. It is helpful to those right behind you.

  2. I love this post! Hello! I am Ashley Perkins, a friend of Dee Dee Galloway. Your family is beautiful! We share a passion for international adoption. My husband and I adopted our sixth and seventh children from China. We adopted our son in Dec of 2009 and we returned this last February with our daughter. Our son is now 4 and our daughter is 2. Our two year old had a total melt down tonight at church. SLOOOWLY I am learning what you wrote about. I cannot wait to read you blog! We also have a blog. I do not post much lately. It is nice to meet you! Ashley Perkins
