I don't miss the baby I gave up for adoption.

I was talking to a friend about this today and told her that I do not miss the little boy I gave up for adoption. I signed the papers once he was born and left the hospital without him. I never let myself get attached and while I did love him(if I didn't, I damn sure would not have carried him for 10 months) I don't miss him. There is nothing to miss. I don't want him with me. I gave him up for a reason and I wouldn't change a thing. 

My friend got all upset saying that I sound heartless and so on and so forth but she just doesn't understand.

You are detached.

I don't blame you and I do understand.

Probably the same way some women never bond with or love their children? It happens.

I'd rather you not miss your child you so selflessly gave up for adoption than to not feel bad about aborting that same child! Atleast your son is alive and well and I'm sure he's being raised by wonderful parents who adore him!!

I can understand that. You can love something you had and not miss all at the same time.
