From September 1st 2015 I will be known Professionally as Alexander James Edwards.
When I was born I was given the name Alexander and was known by this name until I was 6, when it was changed to James.
After 10 years of getting to know my birth family and the scenario of my adoption, I have decided to reclaim the name I was given when I was born. When I am Alex I feel calmer, genuine, generous, creative, empathetic and less confused about my past and present. As Alex, I feel more connected not only to my birth family, but also to my adopted family, my friends and colleagues.
