Go read the full article and then come back here to chat with me about it. I can relate to much of her sentiment despite our differing experiences. Can you?
“Just over two years ago, I quit adoption.
I pulled down my award-winning adoption blog. I removed myself from all online forums and listservs. I unfollowed certain adoption people on Twitter and unfriended them on Facebook, keeping only my daughter’s mother and those who held rank in other categories in my life. I even cold turkey stopped attending an in-person adoption support group, which I had been helpful in creating and sustaining.
I walked away without looking back. If we’re speaking in adopto-speak, you could say I “closed” my adoption world.
And I’m better for it.” – Jenna Hatfield
