Mother’s Day can bring up a lot of hard feelings for adoptees. While I have a wonderful adoptive family and I love celebrating my adoptive mother, a part of me also misses my biological mom a little more on Mother’s Day. Those feelings can bring a lot of confusion and guilt for me.
In this video, I share some of the feelings I have as an adoptee around Mother’s Day and hope other adoptees may find solidarity and validation in their feelings.
My videos are filmed and scheduled to publish weeks in advance. While I had the energy to discuss these topics then, I may be in a different place now. I don’t want any adoptee to feel like I am ignoring their connections. I just have to take care of myself as well.
