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

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

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.

No you did the right thing if you were not able to keep the baby for whatever reason.You did a great thing giving him up for adoption to a family that wanted him in their life. Congrats on that and thank you for giving birth to him so others could have him.

Maybe because she knows she made the right decision and has the satisfaction of knowing she did the right thing by allowing him to live and to have a family who is ready to parent?

Quoting Anonymous 2: I guess I don't understand either then, I'm with your friend. How could you not miss your child???

I'd much rather that then you abort. I think what you did was commendable.

Because you had unprotected sex out of wedlock, you're supposed to punish yourself by feeling unrelenting guilt and longing.  Didn't you know that?

You detached and separated yourself from the situation I can see that.
