Excellent piece Niall. Informative and compassionate. Honest and raw. Thank you for sharing your experiences and feelings.

One of my favourite little girls in the whole world is adopted. I hope she doesn't suffer too much. I hope there is better support and processes in place these days for adoptees to feel integrated and like the first class citizens they are.

Thanks again. Oh - and I am currently an honoury Irish person too! :-)
