While I mention, frequently, that I have children who don't live with me, I almost never put it out on the line that I gave my parental rights to my MIL due to extenuating circumstances (at the time, homelessness). I still have contact with my older two daughters (Guenyvere and Morgan -- we were going with an Arthurian theme until DH didn't like the name Vivian!), but I miss them terribly. Our hope is to re-establish our parental relationship and hopefully to restore our custody over time (if it is appropriate given their circumstances and ages).
I think about them every day. I miss them terribly and I cry often, I'm afraid. I am also an adoptee, and I think that in a lot of ways I got my answer regarding how often my birth mother must think of me (and my older birth sister). There's such an emptiness that I think Evy sometimes struggles to fill.
I look forward to her having the opportunity to meet her older sisters (and her older half-brothers and sister) when the time is right. We are trying to gradually build to the point where everyone is comfortable with meeting!
