We recently received contact from our son's birth mom after 19 mos (when her rights were terminated by the state). Since the adoption finalized, we no longer had CPS telling us that we should ignore her contacts, but suddenly felt like we were the ones who needed to protect our son. After all, she hasn't resolved any of the issues that brought him into care. One thing I do know about "L" is that she loves her/our son. Despite her situation, she still cares for him. Never doubted that. However, I did wonder how her "issues" would affect him.
She recently came to the house to bring him a gift for his 3rd birthday. It couldn't have gone any better. I am now no longer afraid of her trying to take him (CPS said she might try) and no longer afraid that he won't love me as much. I also am no longer afraid that she doesn't consider us his parents. She gets it now & I hope it helps her to feel at peace. Still, it's new.
