About Me

I placed my daughter in an open adoption in 2002. I started this blog in 2004 as a place to journal and eventually I became part of a community. The community has moved on, but I have decided to come back.

I love you

Ever since I found out that my daughter didn't like it when I asked her questions, I only send texts telling her to have a good week or some similar statement requiring no response.  I always say "I love you."  She used to say "you too".  Now I usually don't even get a response, and if I do, it's "thanks."  I'm tired of being told it's her age.

On the plus side, she seems to respond when I text old pictures.  Next time I'm home, I'll put more on my phone.

Today is my daughter's birthday.

The guy I'm dating, who used to be a good support, no longer gets it.  And even if he did, his kids will be here all day.

So I'm going to go home and be alone and that is hard.
