Being grateful is the first step in having joy in one’s life

by on December 15, 2011
 I am aware that certain angry militant adoptees, those on the public forum of Adult Adoptees Advocating for Change, are NOT grateful. No, they are not grateful for the life that was given them nor for those that raised and cared for them. Okay, I also am aware that not every parent/child relationship is a good one and in fact could be very bad. I am speaking generally when I say that one ought to be grateful for life and care.
Knowing that Joan Wheeler’s lack of gratitude comes from her hatred for being adopted and for SOME THINGS that happened within her adoptive family upbringing still does not make her total lack of gratitude acceptable. In fact, I believe it is the very reason that she is so f…ed up!
The following are from the public forum about Thanksgiving Day. It tells us what Joan is thankful for. It is a very interesting look into the mind and heart of Joan, using her AKA of 1adoptee.

 My children and my boyfriend.
And for the relatives who remain in my life…both adoptive and natural families. Many have died, a few are still here.

My my!! what difference a year makes!!
Joan was having a pretty rough time of it, in 2010, on the forum…trying to get us nasty siblings away from her and having a couple of meltdowns on the public forum and all. So of course, she is thankful for them in helping her! But, she didn’t mention her children and family then…isn’t that usually the first group that a person is thankful for…family and then friends? Not for Joan! Who’s important to her is who she can get something from. In 2010, she had the forum.
But in 2011, after most of her past deeds and words had been exposed, the forum doesn’t seem to have her high on their priority and she doesn’t speak out as much as she once did. Also sometime in the the spring of 2011, Joan got herself a new/old boyfriend, so she must have been getting lots of ‘other’ type of attentions to keep her quiet! And of course her children, whom she wasn’t thankful for in 2010, on the forum, and by all accounts wasn’t very much a good mother to them as they grew up, but I’ll leave that for now.
I have of course no idea about her adoptive families members, but I would like to know WHO in the natural family IS THERE TODAY FOR JOAN? There isn’t ONE member of the extended birth family that WANTS to be involved with Joan. So who is she kidding besides herself?
No, that is just another one of Joan’s smoke screens…there is NO ONE from the natural family that Joan has…she blew that!
So  much for being thankful on Thanksgiving Day!

what Joan SHOULD be grateful for is the fact that I am keeping some of the natural family at bay. Just like I did with my friend Francine back in 1995. – that was when Judge Margaret Anderson dismissed my harassment charges against Joan, saying that sisters should get along. Francine and I were on the escalator, Joan was already on the floor beneath us, looked up at smirked at me. Francine started running down wanting to wipe the smirk off Joan’s face. I restrained her.

Many times when I link a blog post to my facebook – there are very disparaging remarks made about Joan. There may be some distant relatives on my maternal grandmother’s side that “may” support Joan, but that’s because they don’t know the REAL Joan – – yet. Give ‘em time, they will. And they don’t even have to read our blogs! Joan may start out all sweet and nice – but then her whining starts wearing people down. Then they start to distance themselves from her. She starts wondering why, confronts them either by phone or by mail – starts badgering them – until – they tell her to “go away.” THEN the “real” Joan comes to surface – the nasty, vindictive bitch Joan, with the harassing letters, phone calls, screaming fits, lies.

Me and my sisters are NOT the only ones who have lived thru this. – Former friends, acquantiances, landlords, and neighbors of Joan have gone thru the same thing.

yeah, Joan is grateful allright – that’s a laugh – she, who thinks the entire world owes her – is grateful?

And here we are again, thanksgiving time, 2012, another year where we birth siblings have proven that Joan has lied and conned gosh more people and where is THAT boyfriend from a year ago…oh I remember, he’s probably the same one that has been attacking us siblings since about Nov 2011, yep must be that same boy friend, Brian, but then again we have exposed Brian, in all his brilliance but of course we sisters didn’t know about Brian in Nov 2011, or in April of 2012 when he attacked us and set up a hate blog against us, and we didn’t know of his true ID until July 2012…yes what a difference a year makes.

and yet there must be others, gee so much happens in a year it’s so hard to keep track of them all, right Joan? they come and they go…Joan cons someone, they fall victim to her, they leave and she looks for another…right Joan? come clean Joan, its good for one’s soul, particularly at this time of the year when you give thanks for your life and those in it…

I know that’s asking a whole lot from you.
