“Where do I belong?”
It was not too long after my birthday and the fun surprise visit from our little’s birth mom. She seemed suddenly unable to know who or where she belonged in our family.
My heart knows where she belongs with ALL of us as we are all family. I spoke with her trying to get her to explain how she was feeling. Trying to answer her questions and emotions. Letting her ask and speak before reassuring her that we are all family. That we all love each other and explaining how our family came to be. How S chose us to be her parents. How we love S and we love her. How she can love S like we do and does not need to choose who to love.
But I’ve come to realize that it’s not just me she needs to talk about this. My husband and I have reached out to our community in search of a child therapist to give our daughter a safe place to speak all her feelings and emotions. We never want her to feel divided or unsure where she belongs and so it is with that belief that we will find her someone to talk to.
I hurt for my little girl. I cannot imagine what she feels in this situation we can only find ways to be there for her and allow her the space and place to work this out.
