As for me, I think you figured it out. I was born in Guatemala and placed in an orphanage. I was adopted by an American couple who were in the Army and "happened" to be in San Salvador and they wanted to adopt a baby. They couldn't do it in San Salvador because they wouldn't let the children out of the country at the time, so the couple went to Guatemala and found me. ADOPTION #1.
Sometimes I think I should be Thrice Adopted because I also became a citizen of the United States when I was just shy of four years old...adopted by this country. Oh well. I would have to write a whole new poem, change my email address and all my usernames if I did that, so I'm content with Twice.
