I was 18 when I got pregnant, 19 when I started seeing a pregnancy counselor at a "local" adoption agency. She was freaking awesome. Long story short, I found out that the only reason she stayed working at the agency as long as she did was because of me - she left & moved less than 2 weeks after I had my baby (I was a complicated case ;) ). Anyway, a few years ago we were at a funeral and lo & behold, she was there! She'd been "fostered" by a lady who is sisters with a lady in our church, the mother of the person who's funeral we were attending. Well anyway, a light clicked today, and I found my pregnancy counselor on facebook just a little while ago. I want to friend her in the worst way, but I don't know if it's "right"??? No one who worked at the adoption agency when I was going there works there anymore, and I haven't been in contact with anyone there in years (since my adoption went open 9 years ago), so I have no one in that world to ask anymore. I AM friends with a lady who was a secretary there at the time, but I know anything to do with that place is a sore spot with her anymore so I don't dare ask her. Ack! Help! Do I?! Don't I?! She made the first "contact" at this funeral - if she hadn't called out to me I'd never have seen her. What do I do?!
