Adopted child looking to release

by Beth Clemetson
(ontario)

I was given up at birth, fostered briefly and then adopted into a household where the mother would rather have had boys. Grew up in a moderately abusive household. I am looking to release my abandonment issues and my travels have led me here. Has anyone had success with this particular kind of case. Thank you

Hello! You are in the right place. Lots of people here have similar backgrounds. Being given up for adoption, parental suicide, alcoholism, mental illness, drug addiction, etc... these all leave similar wounds of abandonment, shame, and contempt on a child.

But even when none of that is happening in a family, a child can still accumulate these emotional wounds... Not enough time, attention, affection, and/or direction takes a huge toll on a child.

But we can feel that our case is different and no one could understand...kind of like the heroine addict saying a cocaine addict wouldn't understand what they are going through.

I hope you stay with us. Please tell us more if you feel so inclined. We would like to hear your story.

You may also want to check out the Recovery Oasis (Link to the left, second one down)... We are building a community of people in an online recovery support space...all of whom will do their best to understand and help out.

Take care,
Don
