It feels like no matter what we do, no matter how hard we try, no matter what we say or don’t way, our found children want to leave, want to hurt us, want to tell us to shove it and show us how little we matter to them. It’s a way of showing us what it was like to be abandoned without warning–just as they were when they were too young to object.” – Lorraine Dusky, Birth Mother, First Mother Forum
Very interesting post over at Birth Mother, First Mother Forum titled Why Dont I like My Birthmother?
More to say on this but it is adoption free friday, right? LOL. I have a post brewing on a related topic – Mothers Who Set Boundaries in Reunion – but I havent the time, energy or desire to go there today. Maybe next week.
