I'm writing to ask for help for my friends Tami and Aaron Schroeder. For as long as I have known Tami she has always wanted to be a mother. Her and Aaron met back in 2003 and immediately fell in love and got married. They have always had the same goals and dreams to become parents. Tami suffered a lot of female health problems throughout the years which had allowed her to get pregnant but lose the baby within the first trimester. This happened to my dear friend 3 times. Each time breaking her heart into a million pieces. They had considered InVitro but with the costs being so high it was next to impossible for them to do. Before they ever even had he chance to try and raise the money Tami ended up in the hospital with severe abdominal pain. She found out that she would need a hysterectomy. Of course this was a blow to Tami and she suffered a deep pain in her heart because all her hopes and dreams had been crushed. Tami and Aaron have recently decided that adoption would be the only way #4

Samuel just act like the years that yall weren't together didn't exist. Like the day you got her was the day she was born (she just happens to be the age she is now and not 15 secs old). Also embrace the uncomfortable feeling of her not being your and get over it because she is your child now. Yeah its hard and takes awhile but when ever your mind puts in the thought that shes not yours and you start to feel weird just remember she is yours. Also it is very common that a parent feels more loving to their own biological child you have years with your own kid then the kid you just adopted or even adopted before birth. One your own kid is from you and has your blood and genetic strands so your basking in your glory/legacy, Two like I stated earlier you have had more time in your own childs life then and adopted one. After a while of treating her as your own daughter it will get easier and start making the process of acceptance as father and child instead of adopted then you'll be almost #5

I am 5 months pregnant looking to give up my child for adoption #7

i really relate to you unhappyadoptee to the point that im crying. im crying because i thought i was the only one who felt like this. i know im not selfish because i try so hard but none the less i feel so utterly disjointed. my family singles me out and im not sure that they even recognize it and that hurts even more because its shows that this is a genuine feeling that they are expressing. my adoptive family and i share the same race,but the difference in personalities is far to apparent. im rarely happy. my adoptive mother is a super optimist and im a more logical realest. my father is strict steer with very little humor. i can be very goofy and i will be the one to make everyone smile at the cost of my own image. i have 2 other adoptive younger brothers we all share the same if not similar feelings and complaints and we have all done something extreme out of emotional distress. i know and have talked to my birth family but i dont feel as though i belong. it hurts not being apart. #8

I would just like to say that, adoption has had good sides for me, but it also has made me more worse mentally. I mean, growing up where you are the only person like you, and feeling that what you do will be judged by everyone. And now becuase I did not grow up being excepted for who i am, i am going to move where there are other asian communities. I want to be just that anonymous person in the crowd like my adoptive parents are. I want to feel fitting in. You guys may think that fitting in should not be my main goal for moving, but it is for me. No i am not self-centered, I just dont want to stand out anymore. I have standed out so much, that I think about how others have it easy. #9

Please I need some advice especially from adoptees. I recently discovered many blogs on how adoptees really feel and how distressed they feel deep inside. I have been informed about a 3 year old kid whose parents have abused him and abandoned him. The parents of these kids are now in custody and the child will be placed for adoption. Will my adoption actually help this child? Will adopting him and showering him with love as a family help him feel loved and wanted after abandonment from his biological parents? Or would he be happier in the shelter home? I would love to adopt him but am also aware of the feelings adoptees feel. Is adoption the right thing to do in this case? Hannah #11

Everyone who is here has something to do with adoption and I was adopted and I know what it's like any one who is like me who has deppersion because of adoption know that there are people who know what it's like that no matter what it's gonna be ok and if your looking to adopted rember to love your child and stay strong if one adoption doesn't work try try and try again and all so if you gave your child away to another loving family when you get the chance to hold your child when there older sqeeze them tell they socially die of embarrassment of how much affection you give them because every adoptee wants to know that even though they were adopted you still love them no matter what! And stay strong no matter what and know even though your different from a random stranger someone has been through your pain and you will always have someone to talk to, Sincerely Nicole #13
