When you were first pregnant after your birth child was placed:
Did you feel a lot of new grief over the adoption? Yes, very much so. I had alot of grief that I had missed out on her newborn years. I also had a huge fear of losing my girls. I still hesitate with letting people watch them. My oldest never had a babysitter until she was over a year old...
Was it hard to not relive the pregnancy while pregnant? Not really. To me, it was alot more joyous.. but I did think about it alot. I felt guilty for being happy..
Did you have someone to talk to about how you felt or did you keep it to yourself? I had a Birth Mother support group that I attended monthly. That helped alot.
Did you wish there was someone you could talk to? I do wish there was a support group here.. I am kinda on my own. Except for Shannon. She is my only connection to adoption here..
