  • Found my Birth Mom
  • by djgolfcan Last comment: Yesterday at 09:14 AM
  • Thanks for the reply Kathy. Seems that the key is going to be open, honest communication and finding out what she wants to do. As for what I want, I have no idea. I was planning on following my bMom's lead. I'm pretty easy going and have zero expectations. Thanks again for the reply, all are welcome. Its really helping.

  • Raven, your (sarcastic) comment of dreaming of placing your firstborn reminded me of a recurring dream I had over the years of giving birth and placing another child. It happened after I had my other two children and probably was because I wanted more children and my husband didn't. Occasionally, I would wake confused and wonder how many children I had placed! One thing I learned long ago --...
