I'm definately not going to be able to respond to each person (due to time and clingy babes) but i read and enjoyed each response and i love hearing what experiences other people have had being adopted. Averysmom, i thought your post was beautiful and LEmama i'm so sorry you lost your newborn (i can't imagine ) I just wanted to add that i was lucky to have been chosen by my parents..i realize that, i was afected by being adopted though...gottago real...
I love it Saganaga, That is awesome that you were able to meet your birth mom. I have toyed with that and for some reason i haven't yet. I think i am ready..definately curious. How did you proceed? LisaMarie, I am chilled by the fact that your birthmom has the same occupation as you, I'm so glad it worked out for you. I also was given nonidentifying info by the agency and found out that i have 8 half siblings. 5 from BM and 3 from BD...i found out that...
Does it affect the way you parent? Has is affected your psyche in a noticable way? Are you curious about your boilogical heritage? I can say that I was adopted at the age of 3 mos and i believe that i soaked up all of my biomoms feelings and turmoil that she experienced while she was pregnant...the to be born and with her for 11 days and the to a foster home which i was rigidly scheduled and eating solids by the time my mom got me at 3 mos (?!) I am so lucky...
Hey Saganaga, What are you doing having babies with *my* husband??
I don't think i resemble anyone..when i was younger and had short red har i was always told i looked like Molly Ringwald and that when i was joking around , Lilly Tomlin. DH on the other hand is always compared to Johny Depp (with long hair) and i definately see it. Whe he was younger and has short hair he looked exactly like Kelso on that 70's show
Christine, What a wonderfull post Thank you for that. You're right, i have alot inside of me that i need to vent out...luckily though, DH is being so wonderfull, its like everything has turned around (which also gets me a bit suspicious ) Its very hard for me to think very clearly right now..partly bc it is Feb. and i get sooo depressed in the winter (that is a whole new thread though...long story) I don't want to break up our family, i sometimes have...
If you go to midwifery today.com, you can find midwives in different states. Im not sure but it is worth a try!!!
In one of the first craft swaps, Sunshinemama2 made me the coolest chimes they are shaped like leaves, and glazed to the most beautiful green and they sound so nice in the wind... Well, i failed to take them down before a storm (i forgot) ane one of the leaves is broken off Is there a glue that would be strong enough? It is porous.. BTW, Sunshine , are you out there? Blessings, Kelly
Thank you, These replies are so helpfull to me. Kim, I do have a hard time trusting Psych Drs unless i have a reliable refferal (bases on a horrendous experience i had myself)...i will keep asking, and i think you make good points. I feel that DS's behavoir goes beyond normal 6/7 yo actions. He has been known to say horrible things about other people when he is sooo angry he doesn't know what else to do . I am having to reexamine my views on meds bc of...
Kim, Thank you so much for addressing that behavoir (which is my main reason for posting) The wording you used, i have used almost the exact same words, esp hitting yourself/others not being acceptable. Its just that when he is acting up like that, nothing i say will get through to him, he is locked into the response. He responds to dissapointment like this (always has) It is scary to hear his seeming self loathing, i was wondering if this is common. He has...
