      Since I moved back to Ohio, we don’t see much of each other like we used to but we are still very close.

    • Unfortunately, no relationship.
      Not by choice.
      She’s just that way. Not for lack of trying on this end etc.
      To answer the question properly, no relationship with adoptive Mom & only paperwork on birth Mother. Considering finding her.
      Have a good day.

    • I have a great relationship with my mom, now!

      It hasn’t always been this way. I’ll spare you all the details, but suffice it to say we have both changed over the years. She’s less demanding and manipulating and I’m more accepting and loving.  

      In my thirties I decided to forgive my parents for not being the parents I felt I needed and deserved. I started learning to love the people they are. I don’t know if that was the pivot, but something shifted.

      I’m happy for you girls who enjoy a long term bond with your moms. I have that with my daughter, and I’m so grateful!

      Jenz, I’m sorry, sweetie. you deserve a loving, attentive mom too. Unfortunately, it sounds as if it’s not in your mother to give. I’ll adopt you! I’d be proud to have you as my girl, though chronogically it’s not a likely match! ;o)

    • I love my mom and I have a good relationship with her.  Good, not great.

      My grandma was my mom’s best friend.  When Grandma passed away, my mom was heartbroken.  I sometimes feel guilty that I can not be the friend my mom really needs.

    • Yeah Jen, we‘re familiar with your path....when ever you are ready, it might be a good step to locate your birth mom. If I were in your shoes, I would try.... and I would also try with all my might to keep my expectations low....  that way any positive outcome will be a bonus.

      For me.... my relationship is loving. My mom is a person who is not comfortable with demonstrative affection. We are different that way...but have come to accept each other’s ways.

    • I have a great relationship with my mom. We argue, put each other in our rightful place and are always there for each other. I love it. She will be 79 years old on the 21st of this month. God bless her!

    • This is going to sound weird, but since my mom died, I have a better relationship with other people. Since I don’t have her to run to and complain, and have her stoke the flames, now I have to analyze situations/relationships on my own. It’s a lot less dramatic.  

      My mom and I did have a good relationship, but during her last years she was making some really bad choices and drinking a lot, so I was getting angry with her much of the time.

    • That really makes sense to me, Lu. The same will probably happen with my daughter when I’m gone.  

      I hope your memories consist more of the good times with her than the tough times.

    • Great and getting better!  That is a testimony in itself, considering that for two years we wouldn’t speak to each other at all, and just knew our relationship was over.  Now we call each other about any and everything.  It’s wonderful!

    • I love my Mom very much. I just don’t like her life style so I am not very close to her. I call her every couple of weeks to see how she is doing and I pray for her everyday.

    • Cindy, I do have very good memories of my mom, along with the not-so-great. She was my biggest cheerleader/defender!
