My birth mother and I just met 4 weeks ago. We are very alike in many ways and different in others. She just can't seem to talk to me, unless she has alcohol in her system and that only leads to a fight. She is blaming herself because I had a bad childhood, and her guilt is only further adding to my guilt. She can't understand why I love her and I can't understand why she loves me. I just wish she would give me a hug or say 'I love you', but she has a really hard time showing affection, not just with me but with her other two children also. I'm just finding it difficult, and I'm so terrified of losing her now that I've found her. I'm 20 and she is 37. Please any advice would be appreciated. I'm desperate, its taken me my whole life to find my mother and I can't lose her again, it would kill me.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
