Healing from the pain of separation after placing a child for adoption can take time. It is important to allow yourself to grieve. But it’s also important to move forward. Our birth family panel shares their healing experiences through talking about adoption, through journaling and scrapbooking, through experiencing the support of family and friends. Starlee’s father talks about his healing coming about through watching his daughter heal and grow and mature. Joining support groups, sharing with close friends, and creating experiences to share seem to be the greatest source of healing. It will be an individual journey of healing, but the passage of time is also extremely helpful.
