Hi all! It's been quite a while since I came to the site, much less posted anything. We finalized the adoption of 2 girls in March. I must admit, life hasn't exactly been easy since finalization. With my oldest a teenager, it's interesting to say the least. I made a big mistake a few months ago and read her journal where she left it open on her desk. I learned WAY MORE than I imagined about how this child lived before being removed from her bios and WAY MORE about her feelings since adoption. I talked with her afterward, apologizing for disrespecting her privacy and asking about some of the things she had written, which I'm not going to disclose except to say it has me very concerned about her emotional health and explosive anger (which is NEVER shown outwardly) mostly toward me (mom). One thing I need help with is her claim that we show favoritism to our middle child (biological). This is something I have always tried to keep a close pulse on so she knows she is loved equally and unconditionally. Any BTDT? any advice?
