Encouraging links between students and school staff around the globe
I always dreamed of going on a Voyage of Discovery... tall ships, thousands of miles at sea, discovering worlds of untold beauty, filled with exotic people who were as interested in my life as I was in theirs. My life. Huh. Get real, Jodie - who'd be interested in me? I go to school, do my homework, watch TV. Nothing interesting ever happens to dull old me. Oh, except did I say I'm adopted? They're lovely people - Dan and Mellie. Always saying how they chose me and how they love me more than they could've imagined. Which is maybe why they didn't argue when I announced on my fifteenth birthday that it was time to start my own personal voyage of discovery. No tall ships, no exotic far-off lands - but shocks and thrills and experiences I could never have imagined as I discovered just what happened when I was born...
The sun is barely up and I am prepared to do something I’ve never done before in my life. As I approach Mellie and Dan the butterflies in my stomach grow larger and larger. Standing in front of them I begin to speak my unanswered questions with the words “I want to finally meet my…... my real parents”.
