Blog: # Find My Family – I’m drawn to it like a moth to the flame

I wrote this in December when the show, Find My Family, first aired.

I love this show, Find My Family – corny to some of you I know (and manipulative to others too – click the first link for EW’s review), but it’s so special to me since I’m involved intimately in adoption. I just love seeing how caring the hosts are, how loving all the families are when they find each other, and how happy the child and biological parents are to have a relationship after all these years.

I can only hope to have a relationship again with my son sooner than later. I did receive a cute hand-written postcard from him (and his parents) telling me he liked my gift of pop-eyed pens (he likes to pop the eyes out regularly. Found a picture to show you because they’re really cute cartoon rubber animal heads on pens I picked up at Staples — the eyes pop out when you squeeze the head. lol Boys…) Pens

It always makes me laugh at what he likes of what I send him because I normally send quite a variety of stuff including t-shirts etc. He’s a cutie! So happy the parents were kind enough to at least do that. I’ll just have to be patient about actually getting to speak to him. He is getting older and may realize soon he can actually ask to speak to me, or just call himself.:)

I love how Find My Family brings families together. There’s enough love for everyone people! Don’t be afraid of sharing – kids need to know their roots. The future will sort out itself.

I know one biological mother who met her child when he was an adult and he was so spoiled and disrespectful she ended a relationship with him to preserve her sanity.

Not that everyone is like her, but it’s definitely very personal on how you choose to handle the connection and your choice in how you handle a present relationship. For every person who reacts like this, there are others who maintain a loving relationship.

Right? Right.

Have a good one.
