I was adopted as a baby, around 6 months old. I was fortunate to be adopted into a loving home with parents who provided everything we needed and a lot of what we wanted. Even with all that they have provided, there are pieces that feel incomplete. I can't explain it and I feel quilty.
I have attempted to obtain more information, but I run into dead ends. The adoption was a closed adoption. I've contacted the agency a few years back and updated them with my contact information so that if my birth parents ever searched for me, they could easily find me.
I went through our state adoption registry but was provided no information, said it was a closed adoption, required a court order to get information.
Part of me fears being rejected, again. Maybe they don't want to be found?
i even did the 23andme hoping to find some connections, I got nothing. (Well lots of connections but mostly 3-5th cousins)
I don't know how much more I am willing to go.
I am trying to be discrete about it too, I fear hurting my adoptive parents. I love them and I am grateful for all they have done for me, I don't want them to think they did something wrong for me to seek them out.
I just need closure and I really want to know what they look like and if I have any siblings.....
anyone else have similar experiences? Did you find them? Do you regret it? Or are you glad?
How did you find them? How did yiur adoptive parents react?
That is the question I have asked myself for many years. Next month will be our 19th wedding anniversary but our marriage died a long time ago. We are friends and we deal with the day to day struggles but the piece that makes a marriage, a marriage, is missing. The intimacy is gone. It’s been at least 8 years.There is already so much stress in our lives that it never seems to be...
I have known my husband for 14, and I feel lonely. It hit me when we experienced our first ED issues 6 months before our marriage and spiraled for 2-years after that, and I don't know what to do.Counseling session, after counseling sessions, has only scratched the surface for these physiological and physical problems but that passionate-bond is gone, dwindled by our disconnect, these strong...
