My husband met his younger sister when they were both in their 40s. She is awesome, and we love her. He and his mom are both disappointed that they don't have more contact with her. I've told them that they need to let her decide what feels okay. I can only imagine how she might feel. All of a sudden she has a bunch of new expectations on her.
Did anyone else feel like that? I'd also be interest in ing from others in the triad who have experienced reunion. How has it been going?
For reunion feelings there is a wonderful book called "Birthright; A guide to Search and Reunion for Adoptees, Birth Parents and Adoptive Parents by Jean A Strauss, an adoptee. Jean Strauss also has a documentary airing on PBS this month called "Adopted for the Life of Me". DVR time. You might also be interested in checking out the Adoption Reunionn group here on CM. Lots of posts and thoughts from people in reunion. http://www.cafemom.com/group/14715 you don't need to be a member to read, post or answer.
