I have read the books. I have gone to the support groups. I have come out of the closet. I have put my energy to good use.
Adoption Healing ... a Path to Recovery - Supplement
Oh, I thought I was pretty good. I really DO have a very good degree of control. I am very aware of my adoption feelings and yet, I am still, over six months later, shocked at the depth of the emotions that came forth when I had to leave that kitten behind in the SPCA in April and it triggered a major adoption breakdown. Not weeping, not crying, but gut wrenching hysterical deep soul crushing sobs.

Rye looks at me shocked, I am beyond all logic. I make it about ten steps to the car, and then turn around…. I am not sure what I said. It was like I had stepped on an emotional land mind and now all this shrapnel of myself was just flying.
Yeah, I learned. It hurt like hell. Over 25 years after the fact and it still hurt like hell. Of course, and I think only other birthmothers can relate to this, the fear is if I start crying I will NOT be able to stop. Need I remind you that my adoption experience was really NOT bad, but rather was actually exactly how domestic infant adoption was supposed to go down in ? And overall today, I am a very happy person and I have exactly the life I want to have; except that I am still a birthmother and it still sucks. Yet, my kids are home from school, dinner is on the stove, I will finish this post, fold laundry and somehow keep it together.
I am not looking for it. It is just there and SO very close to the surface. So how can anyone believe they can heal from relinquishment? All I can say is:.

But we do not heal. Sometimes the wound scabs over. Sometimes the scab gets thick and deep, but it can always be ripped away. And underneath it is still as raw and horrible as it was the day you walked away with empty arms. We just learn to avoid it better. We learn our triggers. We cushion the wound with bubble wrap. We wrap it carefully and try not to bump into things like rough corners that make it bleed and ooze. We bury it deeply, We drink the Kool Aid and stay in denial.
We try to focus on the positive and say how happy our children are at our own expense. But, there is no check list of post relinquishment activities.
