So I guess my mom, Debbie lives in FL. Has been sober for a few years now. So after reading my sisters email and crying (yes I told my mom about this) I got the courage to email my birthmother (I got it from my sister) so I emailed her...I told her I didnít want to meet her right away and that emails where all I can emotionally handle right now, and here is where I want to start crying again. Been (in just 2 hours from finding out) a huge roller coaster of emotions...and I hate it.
I donít know what to think expect or do.
First of all, I am in no place to tell you what to do but would like to only suggest that you not feel obligated to do anything about this new discovery. And then, it would be great if you could get help in the form of counseling in person FROM A COUNSELOR WHO UNDERSTANDS ADOPTION ISSUES, as many do not. Contact a local adoption agency (not social services) for help with finding someone. They have great resources. This would be really difficult to handle all by yourself, you need someone to share your feelings with before you do anything.
Wishing you the best and feel free to pm me if you need to talk...
