great expectations

Postby mark n » Fri Apr 13, 2012 5:19 pm

on finding and meeting my birth mother ,i found it hard to come to terms with the way she went on with me.my first meeting with my birth mother was organised by my eldest sister who has been the go be tween for us. when i arrived and met my sister she informed me that my birth mother wanted to be called mum from the start,i was a bit uneasy with this but thought why not see how it goes.as like so many adopted people i had loads of questions i thought that even if i got answers to the main ones i would be ok. the reception i got was not what i expected at all it was nice to meet you call me mum.after a while of chatting about things and been fobbed off with any answers my birth mother suggested that my children ,her grand children will call her nana.i stated as she had not even met them or they her she had no right to suggest this but as i was told she was my blood and my real mother.i must admit im not happy with this and this has caused many problembs with my children and my wife,has any one any ideas on how to proceed :x
