Hi..I gave up a daughter when I was 17. Pretty much forced by my parents. I have no regrets. She has awesome parents. Her A-mom was great with sending me photos,writing me letters about how she was doing(it was semi-open adoption)She(b-daughter)started writing me letters when she was 10.Met her(since I had left her at the hospital)at her high school graduation(2000)Have seen her about 4-5 times since then. We dont have much communication now-a-days. She is getting married in June 2009 and her 1/2 siblings and I are all invited. I'm really quite nervous about it. Sometimes I feel her A-mom wants her to keep in contact with me more than she actually does. I feel she is so content with her family that she doesnt have alot of interest in me or her 1/2 siblings(which includes 1 sister)Which I do understand and am glad she had such a wonderful upbringing. I'm working thru this,and just lokking for someone who may have experienced something similar. Any comments/advice would be much appreciated:)
