I am a First Mom (Birthmother) to a daughter relinquished in 1987 and I have just entered reunion. It was a closed adoption, and we are just getting to know one another. 20 years is a lot of time to fill in.

I am also an adoptive parent to a beautiful little girl from private domestic infant adoption. It is a VERY open adoption, and I am still learning how to navigate through it. Most of the time I just see myself as “Mom”, but do have adoption related issues pop up from time to time. That is why I am here; to try to sort through them.


  1. I just read your post about your daughter and your father in Italy and wanted to thank you. It’s lovely and has me in tears.

  2. I hope you don’t mind but I added your blog to my blogroll.
    I am fascinated by your story and what it will become.
    If you don’t want me to link to you, please let me know.
    all the best 🙂

  3. I too have you on my blog roll and thanks for adding me…..
