053 – Seeing The Life That Could Have Been

Meredith had enough adoptees around her growing up that adoption was no big deal. Yet, her parents never felt comfortable actually discussing adoption. After getting pregnant, and spurred on by her mother-in-law’s intuition that Meredith wanted answers, she started searching. When her social worker found her biological parents, they were married with children. Her reunion has filled her with mixed emotions because she’s thankful for the life she’s led but’s she’s seen the family photos for the life that could have been.

    I love that you got this out in the open; and can hear yourself say what has bothered you for so many years..Since then, I have hoped that I hadn’t pried into your business too much. I am so proud of you for pushing forward into emotions that have bothered you for many years..It took a lot of strength for you to get these cooped up feelings out…I love you will always be here for you..

    Thanks for sharing your story. It’s helpful to me, as I recently found my birth mother and full biological sister.
