Happy Mother's Day From Your Adopted Child

To the woman who raised me and made me who I am today.

Happy Mother's Day From Your Adopted Child
Isabelle Carlson

Dear Mom,

Happy Mother's Day.

I know I don't say it enough, but I love you and appreciate everything you have done for me. I can't help but think of how lucky I am to have you in my life. You didn't just get stuck with me, you chose me. You may not have grown me in your stomach, but you grew me in your heart, and you loved me before you even knew me.

Some may say that you're not my "real" mom, or that there's a difference between an adoptive parent and a biological one. They obviously don't know what it's like to be adopted. You are my "real" mom. You are my everything. You are the one who clothed me. Who fed me. Who raised me. And who taught me what it means to be selfless and live for others.

I will never be able to thank you for all that you have done for me. There are no words to say how incredibly lucky I am to have you in my life, and how incredibly blessed I am to have been chosen to be your child. You have given me so many amazing gifts, but above all else, you have given me a family, and for that, I will forever be grateful.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me

It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season
