My greatest fear has come true. My son, that we took in at 14 and adopted at 15, decided on Mother's Day that he no longer wanted to live with us and wanted to go back to his biological mom. This was after a series of events that took place throughout the weeks, including us calling the police on him because of drugs/alcohol/assault on me.
In the state of Michigan we can't kick him out, and we have to let him back in if he wants to come back home, but he's saying that he hates us and wants nothing to do with us and will never talk to us again. He's saying that she is a totally different person now and all the abuse he suffered by her was in the past and would never happen again, and all the domestic violence and abuse to his little brother and sister (who remained in the home) were overexaggerated.
I know this is normal, I know a lot of adopted children do this. Does anyone have any links to articles or books or know people who have dealt with this? He's my first and only child and I miss him so much and love him so much, but he treats us so badly. Not just in this but his absolute disrespectfulness when he was here is horrible. I feel so empty. :(
