How to find your own identity by visiting the country where you are from…

Finding Your Own Identity as an Adopted

As an adopted you have 2 identities usually one from the country you are from and one from the country where you are living. 
Some adoptees do not want to go back to the countries where they are from because they are afraid and some are feeling spoiled between the two cultures and countries, 
I remember I had the exact same feeling I felt so different and the same time I looked Indian and was Danish. Due to some events in my life it took me years to take the courage to visit India where I am from. I was honestly so scared of going back as I felt they would reject me because of how I was looking Scandinavian and not Indian at all and how it would be to meet your own original culture background.
Back in 2006 I went to India with my adopted parents. We had the most amazing trip together. By visiting India made me feel so home and not different at all. I felt peace.  
So, if there are any adopted parents out there reading this post I suggest you to be patient with your adopted child and let them get ready emotionally for the trip by meeting their own roots and see where they are from.
I truly believe it is extremely important to go back to the country where you are from and it will also help you understand your own identity. Sometimes the missing brick is falling into place after visiting the country where you are from. The brick you have been looking for your whole life. 
Love and peace….

Why I Became An Adoption Life Coach

Why I Became An Adoption Life Coach

My name is Ranjanna Mariia Hvenegaard and I am adopted from Mumbai in India in 1972, I have been raised happily and loving by a Danish Family.

My parents had three biological children before they adopted me. I came to Denmark when I was 8 1/2 months old.

Throughout my life, people frequently ask “what is it like to be an adopted child?” So in 2016 I published my first book One Voice Empowering Life Lessons About Adoption.

I am sharing my journey as an adopted child and truly believe that my book is  valuable for not only adopted children and their families and but also for couples/singles considering adoption.

Writing my book has been a journey of rediscovering my life with new and different eyes.

It has been a journey with a lot of tears, pouring through the experiences of my life. While writing, I found myself going back in time, reliving events as I re-experienced them, feeling as I did then and writing as I felt.

I have climbed Mount Everest throughout my life and now facing the summit seeing the light and fruits, I can say I am very proud of myself that I was able to write this book.

 Becoming “Who You Are” is a lifelong effort that requires letting go of old limiting beliefs, past stories you once told yourself.

It requires forgiveness from past relationships and events,

My goal and the purpose of this blog is to share, inspire and encourage others to change their life and be their own voice, live their life path and find the courage to fulfill their destinies.

I have dedicated my life to helping other adopted children and parents alike, inspiring them to live the lives they truly deserve.

I am a resource for the adoption community worldwide and I am an Adoption Transformation specialist, speaker and coach,

My hope is that sharing my own true story with other adopted children, they will be able to save years of suffering, pain and limiting beliefs and to stay focused on the present and the future, rather than the past.

It is an enormous gift being adopted into the world we are living in today. Take that gift and use it to empower yourself and other people to find the passion we all desire and deserve to have in our lives.

Best regards,
