Adoptee Forum: Do you celebrate 'Gotcha Day'?
Arrival Day, Airplane Day, Anniversary, Gotcha Day...these are some of the terms used for the date you arrived into your adoptive family. Some celebrate it like a birthday, others ignore it, and still others can find it upsetting.
Share your thoughts with other adoptees on the meaning of this day. If you celebrate, what are your favorite memories and traditions? If not, why not? Does our attitude toward this day say something about how we feel about adoption or ourselves?
