Problems in school

Postby Pam » Tue Mar 08, 2005 1:35 pm

I am an adoptee doing my GCSE's and spent a double lesson of English the other day analysing a poem on mothers giving birth - just what I needed in the run up to Mothers Day - it was awful. The teacher didn't even seem to understand why I would find this difficult. My adoptive parents and I have always been open with the school and my friends about being adopted but no one at school seems to realise that things like this can be hard to deal with or even cares - have been given the brush off so many times and told to get on with it. :cry:

How unkind and thoughtless of your teacher, I'm a bmum rather than an adoptee but I back you up on this one completely. From what you have put am I right in thinking your parents never had a natural child? If I'm thinking on the right lines it must have beeen hard for your mum as she would have found it difficult to analyse the poem as well. People have to be in your situation to understand but it is no excuse for your teacher to brush the situation off.

No my adoptive mum is fine about stuff like that - my mum and dad chose to adopt rather than have their own which is why they took older kids not babies - I guess they are a bit unusual - in fact they are pretty special all round. Actually it was a good poem and I was able to talk it through with my mum and she made me feel a whole heap better - it was just being stuck in the class and feeling choked up and then my teacher just not even trying to understand I guess.
I do see my bmum well - I have for a long time but I was supposed to meet her a few weeks back but she hasn't bothered to ring me - guess she just doesn't want to do it anymore.

Thanks for explaining the situation - it's nice that your mum talks about things like this with you. I still think your teacher should be more understanding of the fact that you are adopted though :D .
