Hey Sadia, Hows it gone since recently finding out you were adopted? I hope we'll all get together soon :)
Thanks for the warm welcome! I look forward to meeting you at one of the upcoming events. And of course, if you want to talk more, feel free to contact me.
Yes, my relationship with my parents is amazing. I love them and they are very supportive in talking about the adoption. I've truely been blessed with them. Adoption has effected my relationships I have with others such as friends and boyfriends. I've seen psychologists but I felt like they never knew what I was really feeling. I have a huge issue with rejection and lately have noticed it more and more. I've also been thinking more and more about being adopted and how it really effects u
Thanks for the warm welcome! I am sure it is so hard to just learn you were adopted, Ive known all my life. I dont know what is harder- to always know or to just find out. Same to you, if you need someone to talk to Im here. Have you ever been to a meeting?
Thanks for the welcome! I'm happy to share my experiences finding and meeting my first/birth mother. My husband basically did the entire search online - we were helped by an "adoption angel" who was somehow able to access my closed adoption records. It's been pretty life-changing (mostly in a positive way). I'm still processing lots of stuff, though. It definitely helps to talk to other people who share the same reality.
