Finally found a meme that nicely (as in accurately *and* kindly) captures all that I want to say in response to people who are surprised, and sometimes annoyed, to hear that I’m not seeking out bio dude’s living family. I fit there genetically. *However* all evidence indicates that I would find being among them like being on the Island of Misfits, especially when it comes to basic life philosophies. I am certain now, and knew always, that I belonged where I was planted, that life was letting me travel again with my soul family. The rhizomes that my family nurtured as irises – like them, I connected – no, I thrived – after transplanting and in the care of their nurture.
