You know what?

When you're depressed, and you're adopted, and you google adoption depression, because you're depressed about adoption, and page after page after page after page is all about depression in adoptive parents, that's very depressing.

I know I've been a horrible blog neighbor lately. Sorry. I'm depressed.

Sorry you're depressed. )-: I'm wrestling with that now too.

I've been down that little slice of Google myself and found it, well, depressing. Is there ANY aspect of what happened to us that isn't somehow all about someone else?

I am depressed to read in The Nation all the gushing adoration of the movie Juno and how single teen mothers who keep their babies give them a crappy life : /

{{{{Theresa}}}} I'm sorry you are depressed. I can totally relate, I feel like I've been battling depression my whole life.

Sending you love and light xx

Been there, still doing that off and on. It sneaks up.


On another note, Theresa, I'm writing to ask for you help, the help of all bloggers, to spread the word.

I'm hoping to write an article about the impacts of reunion on spouses and siblings. I started this project last fall and got little input. But a recent comment to my post spurred me to get back on it: Reunion Impacts

There's lots of talk, lots of information, about how reunion impacts the natural parents and their grown children. But little said about how reunion affects the spouses (of both parties) and siblings. I want to hear from anyone with something to share on this topic:

As a birth parent, how did your spouse react to your reunion? What were the impacts on your spouse and/or your other children? What about your relationship with your parents and other family members?

As an adoptee, how did your reunion affect your spouse and children? Your adopted siblings? What is your relationship with your natural siblings?

Perhaps there are also adoptive parents out there for whom reunion had an impact on their marriages.

People can respond with comments on my blog or by emailing me at: Denise

Thanks, and more hugs,

Theresa just want to let you know it's not the same in adoption city without you! You are missed.
love tina
