Yes it's normal. The loss of a child is huge, even if your child is alive and well. If your child had died no one would have expected you to be over it by now. You need to grieve the loss of your child to adoption. Like others have suggested look for therapy and support

Betty Jean Lifton PhD lives in Cincinnati Ohio. Is that any where near where you are? She is an adoptee that was one of the first to start writing about post adoption effects and is highly respected in the adoption community. Here is a link to her page: http://www.bjlifton.com/counseling.htm At the very least I would drop her an email. She will now if there's any therapists or support groups in your area of Ohio. I've emailed several therapists and they've always been very kind in their replies.
