Arrogance

1st August 2005

The past few days have been bad for me emotionally and matters weren’t helped by me allowing some posts get to me. I am beginning to get really fed of one person’s arrogance attitude towards mothers. She claims to respect mothers and yet she puts us down as if we are the lowest of the low and that we don’t have any rights at all. Another has issues with her own adoption and is so disrespectful of mothers she thinks it’s okay to be nasty. She thinks I’m patronising even though I wasn’t and certainly doesn’t like anybody being negative towards her but we are expected to take it off her. She is young but it’s still no excuse.

Sent a response to K who sent an ‘angry’ email to Anne but haven’t had a response back so don’t know if my email did any good or not. For a couple of days I was troubled about my response to K was but yesterday I felt better about it so at least I tried. K will know she isn’t alone about how she feels even if I haven’t got through to her.

On top of that I am still struggling with Anthony’s birthday coming up on Wednesday. I was dealing with that and was actually beginning to look forward to it but I feel I been knocked back months emotionally due to the posts that upset me.

About Philippa

I am married to Rick and we live in a small town in County Durham. We have two dogs, a cat and two budgies. I am also an adoption survivor. In 1981 my son was born and I was then forced to surrender him. It took 23 years and reunion for my to find out that my son's adoption was legally known as a forced adoption and illegal but social workers got away with it because mothers didn't know their rights.
