I love your blog rebecca- My amom is getting more used to me talking about my other family- after 11 years or so in reunion- almost 12- I may share your blog with her to read.... I hope she reads it. She is getting more interested and easy to talk to. I am 32 years old.
I'm an adult adoptee and an adoptive mom and LOVE this post. So simple and so real :) I recently stumbled upon your blog and after reading a few posts I knew that I had to subscribe. Your words really resonate with me.
Thanks, Tara! It's great to "meet" another adoptee and adoptive mom. Glad you found my blog!
Amom conversations can be the hardest sometimes. I've been thinking lately about how I have these two conflicting pulls regarding my mom: one is a desire to share the whole truth of my adoption experience with her so she will know and understand me; the other is a tendency to shield her from that truth because I know she will find it painful. I need to think about this some more. Maybe there's a future blog post in this.
