I believe timing plays a very important role in life and that’s why I felt I was ready to write and release a song about my past.
ONLY CHILD was written for all the CHILEAN ADOPTEES WORLDWIDE who had their Basic HUMAN RIGHTS taken/stolen from them. This was under the Dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet in the 70s, 80s and 90s.
I was one of those children adopted out in 1981, only ever knowing what my parents had been told - that I was ABANDONED by my mother.
It was in 2019 I learnt the real truth.
This piece is for those who have suffered loss and pain, for those who have been reunited with loved ones and for those who are still searching for their Roots.
ONLY CHILD is dedicated TO MY FELLOW ADOPTEES AND THEIR FAMILIES. I hope this song helps create some type of awareness. FINALLY and most IMPORTANTLY, I hope together we can put an end to Illegal Adoption and Child Trafficking not only within Chile but throughout this world..more
