I placed twins for adoption and they are 18 months old now. They ended up in my neighborhood. I do not have an open adoption. I only see them from a distance. I am very active in my neighborhood; walking alot, running, biking etc... I do not recieve pictures or updates... I see them a lot out walking and will go the other way if possible. I am having a lot of issues with honesty, stealing, seperation, confidence. I am pushing everyone away. Lots of nightmares, paranoid. Could I have ptsd? What are your thoughts? Im hurting so much. I was told I would deliver and disconnect. I don't think I am disconnecting.Answer Question

If you don't have an open adoption then how are you sure they are your children? PTSD primarily has to do with reliving an event and feelings of intense distress. A mother that gave her babies up for adoption that had PTSD might relive the birth or the last time she held the babies. It doesn't sound like you have PTSD. Mothers that place their babies for adoption seldom deliver and disconnect. I'm sorry someone told you that. You need to talk with someone experienced with working with women in your situation.
