I am from a womb of an unknown lover who, for her own reasons, gave me up for adoption.
I am fragile, helpless and innocent.
I am a freshly hatched sea turtle, swimming into the Pacific Ocean in search of a family who I can love unconditionally, and who can reciprocate their love back to me.
I am Margaret Ruth Reber-Wynn, named after my two deceased grandmothers; my last name, Wynn, continuing my mother’s family name.
I am an airplane, traveling back and forth from the beaches of Narragansett, Rhode Island, the Wisconsin Cheese Heads, the extreme outdoor sports in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, and the deserts of Arizona.
I am adventurous and brave, always open minded towards experiencing new activities, foods and cultures.
I am a Korean female, achieving the American dream of success, fame and wealth through thrift and hard work.
I am able to keep my own paychecks, vote as a Democrat, and travel towards my future goals.
I am the sun rising over the world with values and character in which I contribute a role for my family, community and society.
I am an untrained puppy who chews on shoes and pees on the carpet.
I am not perfect, as I have and will continue to make mistakes.
I am a hand of poker, learning each and every day from the cards that are dealt into my life.
I am growing into a smart and devoted woman.
I am becoming the future through my past, my experiences and my educators.
I am so thankful for swimming into the home and harts of two wonderful parents who know my potential and support me with my decisions.
I am proud to be adopted.
I am confident, beautiful and strong.
I am Margaret Ruth Reber-Wynn.
