Disposable People?

I was adopted at 3 weeks in Texas in 1958. My birth mother “Mona” was promised that I would be given a “forever family”, one that would provide a wonderful loving home where I would be treated as if I had been “born into it”.

What a crock!  In 1972 after my adoptive parents divorced the extended family and later my adoptive mother seemed to distance themselves from me. While I was still invited at times to family functions, they became far and few between until they stopped altogether. For over 20 yrs I was in all sense abandoned. This blog is an attempt by me to find other adoptees’ who have had similar experiences.

    Such promises, and outcomes, are still being made today to birthmothers. I’m so sorry.:(
