Parallel Yet Unequal Families...

A mother poignantly expresses the joys and pain of reunion in this highly recommended blog post:

What does it mean to have two mothers? One that “gave you away?”  whose development was arrested at the time of your birth? that tried to laugh off the paralyzing fear of you “disappearing again”?
Another mother that acquired and cared for you? that you have a history and routines with? that you know how to count on and what to expect? that has the stamp of approval?
