Issues Faced By Adopted People

Issues faced by adopted persons: 1. It is very common for those who were adopted to feel rejected and abandoned by their birth parents. This is accompanied by feelings of grief and loss. There is no set time or age when these feeling surface but, sooner or later, they do. 2. Feelings of loss and rejection are often accompanied by a damaged sense of self esteem. There is an understandable tendency to think that “something must be wrong with me for my birth parents to have give me away.” It must be understood that these feelings and thoughts are unrelated to the amount of love and support received from the adoptive parents and family.

Abandoned 40 Years Ago, Seeking Birth Family

My name is Angie, and I’ve started this blog to help my husband find his birth family. We’ve exhausted all other options, as far as we can tell, so we’re taking our search to the internet. Here’s what we know.  This is my husband at about 2 years old. My husband was born on or about June 6, 1972.
