Ok, this is one of those questions that I've been wanting to ask but needed to gain the strength to ask it -- what things, if any, trigger your sense of loss? For me, this is one of those buried-deeply topics that we adoptees tend to sometimes struggle with, though, for those of us adopted as newborns or young babies, it can get buried so deeply its hard to know its even in there. Maybe for some of us it truly isn't in there but am guessing that for those of us who were adopted out at an older age, or maybe if you found out late in life that you were adopted, this all could take on a different effect. Anyway, it's 2 weeks until my oldest leaves for college as many of you know since i've been obsessing about it pretty much the whole time I've belonged to this site. Just wondered what situations in life have triggered you over the years?
