Cyberspace adoption

Updated on November 15, 2008

 

Adoption. The first time I thought about it was some sixteen years ago when I was told I couldn’t have children. I seriously considered adoption because I really wanted children. An option for more people on this planet, people who want to so to speak compensate not having children of their own by adopting children who don’t have loving parent to raise them.

However, thirteen years ago it turned out not to be necessary. I got pregnant and nine months later I put a son onto this world. A miracle two people who were important in my life did not get to witness. Both my grandmothers passed away, one only two days after the other, shortly before I got pregnant. And I still miss them. Which is completely normal if people have meant so much to you.

meet your new cyber family

And here I am, having spent five months here at HubPages. And all of the sudden you meet someone. Sure, you meet more than just one, but every once in a while there’s this one person who touches you more than others; who really reaches out to you. By the kind, understanding comments and sometimes it’s as if this person can look straight into your heart and uses exactly those words, recognizable words too, that bring a long feeling of missing back to the surface; without melancholy or sorrow but with a warm smile.

 And one comment leads to another so as of today I have adopted her. Our own sweet huggable G-Ma. An adoption in cyberspace has occurred.

I am sure that for everyone there is someone here with whom they have a special connection, a feeling of being related.

So, if you could adopt someone, a Hubber, who would that be and why?
