I had a dream. I was around other people who were effected by adoption. A couple women, said that birthmom admitted to not calling her child on his birthday. I remember in my dream telling her this.
Birthmom's feel like they are not wanted and also feel like they are a pest in their child's life. They want to be in their lives but they feel like they don't deserve to be. Isn't that really sad?

I have a decent relationship with my son and I do not call him - ever. He calls me.

I do not want to be a pest. I feel this way because the issues with his adoptive family are huge.

It makes me feel like an unwed teenage mother who has no rights. Surprise, surprise.

Yes ~ it is really sad...

In choosing adoption we kill our self-worth. I still often find myself worrying that I am a pest in my son's life.
