Can Tell Mom Anything

  • Print

My mom is one of my best friends and we have great talks...today was one of those days. We talked about many things including something I have been keeping from her for more than a year.

She always wanted me to find my biological mother, but I had no interest...I have the greatest parents and did not want to hurt them.  Why did I need to find my biological parents?  Well, now that I have kids I decided to find her since she was 17 when I was born and I can't imagine a day without my kids.  I felt guilty if I had not contacted her yet and she has been waiting all these years.

I was nervous about hurting my mom, especially since I have now kept it from her, but she was so excited to hear the news until I told her my biological denied the request.  She still lives in Green Bay but was not ready at this time.  My mom went from smiles to tears, which made me lose it.  I have no relationship with this woman who gave birth to me, but hearing that she did not want to meet me 14 months ago hurt...not sure why.  All I know is that it felt great to finally tell my mom and have one of those mother-son moments..we have had so many over the years.  I am so blessed to have been adopted at the old age of 10 days by the greatest people on earth.
