Five For Friday: First Mother Blues

Today I am highlighting five more posts by first mothers. The theme of loss and/or regret is more prevalent in this week's selections than in those of two weeks ago. These are not cheerful posts, but they are powerful and worth reading. This side of adoption needs to be part of the conversation, too.

This Is Not the Post I Intended to Write

  1. Thank you for posting these.... all to often people want to put these thoughts out of their minds- mothers are told they will get over it- there is no getting over it. Thank you thank you thank you for posting this. I hope some adoptive parents will read this and take it to heart and at least re open their adoptions they closed after they got uncomfortable. I hope they have compassion on their childrens other mothers.
