Raw and Open: How Does It Feel To Be Adopted? | Mental Illness Community Canada

This hits straight to my front door step for me!! I was adopted, along with 4 siblings. The parents who adopted me favored their three biological a few short years later. I’ve honestly struggled with acceptance until recently, and abandonment all my life.

  1. Thanks for sharing. I was adopted too, and have experienced similar issues around fears of abandonment, and with detachment and dissociation. I had not really known that this was the experience of other adopted children. (After becoming acquainted with my biological mother a few years ago and the relationship between us turning bad, I am ultimately grateful to have been adopted, though.)
