I am answering to your reply to my post over at Confessions of a Birthmom.:


I know exactly what you mean, I am struggling with this same issue right now. See my blog post:

One of the Moms I met who has been in reunion for 20 years now, still struggles with this issue. I find that very disheartening. She offered this quote from a friend who is dealing with stage 5 cancer; "I am not optimistic, but I am hopeful". I interpret the quote to mean for me in my adoption situation that, I am not optimistic that things will change between me and my children because of the circumstances surrounding our adoption situation, but I will try to keep an open heart or be hopeful that we can work into a relationship with the way things are now. It will never be the kind of relationhip I would like to have, where we are all extended family, me, the kids, and the adopted parents. I always thought it would be that way if they ever came searching for me, but the adopted parents refuse to have anything to do with me. After 3 and 1/2 years my children have both cut off contact. So I have no choice but to accept things as they are and move forward, if I want to have any kind of life for myself.
