Do we need to talk?
Ughhhh... can you sound anymore pathetic?!? Way to lay on the guilt trip there mom.
But I just need to know if everything is ok. It's been so long since I have heard from him...
He's busy. He has a job that requires travel. He has two little ones, a wife, a home, lots of responsibilities.
But I've never gone this long without hearing from him.
Did I sense a tinge of awkwardness at his last visit? He was very short and quiet when I called him on Easter Sunday. Didn't answer my phone call on his birthday...
Quit imagining things that aren't there. You've done this before and the worry was for nothing.
Does he have anyone to talk to about all of this? Do I offer him some blogs, the adoptee forum as places to seek support online?
What if you are putting thoughts and issues into his head that aren't there?
If I don't email him tonight, how much longer do I wait?
For as long as it takes.
