If so...how was your experience?
Mine was great for about 10 years. Then I started to really see their true colors. They were VERY controlling and self centered. Expected me to treat them as my parents and show up to EVERY family activity or else...I adopted my DS & they visted when he was 2 weeks old and not agin until he was 1 (they live a 1/2 hour away). Most of this atitude is my birfather's new wife spread througout the family. She is so immature and insecure and totally not understanding of our situation. She is NOT my Mom and she hates it. My birthfather is soo snowed by her that I never talk with him. DH & I wrote them off last fall because they were so ot of control. There is 1 positive; I have 2 100% birth brothers that I am still close with.
If it is ok may I ask where is your birth mother?The new wife sounds like several of the women my dad married .He was married to my mom first for 14 yrs then got married often.Smart to stay away from that ,they will just drive you down and crazy.Guess I am also saying this particular behavior has little to do with being a birth parent just attention seeking drama filled behavior.Stay away is correct.

i have been reunited with my son for 4 years. We have a very close loving relationship. LOL at least that what I say, he being the adoptee might give you an entirely different answer.
I'm sorry your birth dads wife poisoned your relationship with him but very glad you are still close with your brothers :)
