Any Advice??

Postby Becs » Thu Feb 19, 2009 11:50 am

Hi all,

I gave up my daughter 11 years ago, and I am really lucky that I have managed to build a fantastic relationship with her and the family.

But I am finding it really hard to deal with especailly as she has recently started calling me mum, through email.

Most people go on how wonderful it is that I have a good relationship with her and that I should be grateful, but even though I am, no one seems to understand that it is still really hard.

They also moved to New Zealand when she was five, and they are coming back to england this September for a holiday, and naturally my daughter is really exited and wants to see me.

My main concern is that she is not made to feel unwanted or un loved so I push my own feelings and emotions aside - But.... I don't know I just wish someone could understand.

Seeing her is also hard because you have to say goodbye. The first time at the hopsital was bad, but I have had to do it twice since then and in October it will be a third time.

Any advice - or am I just loosing the plot!!
