I found my son I gave up for adoption he is 34 now. What should be a very glorious time in my life because he has had everything I prayed and hoped for. I find myself grieving and longing for all that was lost.Understanding his adopted mother will always be his #1 mother as well deserved and she is this most spectacular woman. I hate that she holds what I gave away. I gave my son up for all the right reasons and I have been blessed he is back in my life and we share this really awesome bond. I just don't understand why I feel I am still grieving for him and all that is lost. My heart hurts so much! #1
