When you were first pregnant after your birth child was placed:

Did you feel a lot of new grief over the adoption?

Was it hard to not relive the pregnancy while pregnant?

Did you have someone to talk to about how you felt or did you keep it to yourself?

Did you wish there was someone you could talk to?


I am and have been having a lot of issues with this. Your input would be invaluable.

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..
