So I ties from my Birthmothers family. It was hard to do which is why I haven’t wrote in my book this week. Its been emotional for me to think about writing. IOP therapy has been helping.
I wrote an Dear Brandon Erickson poem after what he said and how my cousin Emily took his side. Im not ashamed of my past nor am I going to allow an younger white male tell me that its my fault for how he treated me. Being abandoned by my birth mothers family this time around doesn’t hurt as much when I First found out I was adopted.
They have a Its all about us not about you mentally. Its sad that I couldn’t voice how I felt on my old church with out Brandon typing out how he felt on me. The post wasn’t about him.
I am now free of the what if they don’t like me or will they like me. There non communication was enough for me to make my decision to stop communicating with for now. But my cousin Emily Erickson took it to the extreme. Which is fine with me. Communication is key for any good relationship to happen. And they weren’t responding.
