The Partners of Adoptees

The partners of adoptees and other affected by adoption are in for one hell of a ride. This is something that Nancy Verrier and others have written about, and I'm certainly aware of it in my own life. Adoption issues have affected me throughout my life, and they continue to affect me to this day. And sometimes they spill over into my other relationships, including my relationship with my spouse.

Adoption healing isn't something you get to do just once. You make progress, and you think you are okay, and then something happens and the wound gets ripped open again.

If you are really lucky, you find someone who sticks with you through it all. Instead of my usual "Five for Friday" post, this is a brief post of thanks to my husband, who walks with me through the crazy and helps me find my way home. Again and again.


  1. I can so relate and thank my husband too. Hugs!

  3. I am not an adoptee, but I am just as thankful for a wonderful husband who supports me through my worse days when flashbacks from my childhood abuse.

    There is nothing more loving than a man, holding you, giving you the comfort you need. When the pain comes from something that you were never able to control, the love that you missed as a child, somehow isn't as unbearable when you are being held by someone who loves you inconditionally now.

  4. Thank you, hubby! :) He's awesome, and I'm so happy that he's supportive of you. Though I'm not an adoptee, I'm sympathetic because I'm on my own up and down sort of adoption journey. Oy. *hugs*

  5. Sharing with my husband who also walks with my daughter and me. Thank you!

  6. My husband Herb has reminded me he knew nothing about adoption until we met. I do exhaust him with details but he is the most supportive person who is not adopted I have ever known.
