Arrow meeting my 2year old sister for the 1st time. - April 26th 2009, 05:56 AM

okay well yes, im adopted. and without going into my past lets just say my birth dad is a great man. respectful, kind and just an amazing person.
i guess i came here today just to vent. well not even vent, but just tell someone how im feeling, because i tried telling my mum (adoptive) and she didnt really see my point of view.

im really, really, really scared to meet this little girl. and i dont know why. ive met my birth mum's son, who is also biologically related to me. but that was different. and as strange as this sounds. he's a boy, so i dont really see the resemblence between us.

this little girl however is the same as me. blonde hair, blue eyes.. pretty much a little me. and im scared to meet her. i REALLY want to meet her and im so excited at the same point.

but little children either love you, or hate you, and im sure she wont hate me.. but im still scared. to meet a mini me, my own flesh and blood. to touch her, hug her, hold her. she's half of me. (shes my half sister) and i just find that so strange. and i know im going to want to have more with her life. but i cant. i will only be seeing her once every few months. and that hurts.

its really strange. i have 1 half brother on my birth mums side. and 4 half sisters on my birth dads side.. but im only meeting the youngest one this time. and im scared. and i dont know why. ive never, ever felt like this. not even meeting mybirth parents.. only this one little girl.

anyway just need to vent that. thanks =)

Hi Claire,

I'm so glad you came here to talk about this. I can understand how this must be affecting you right now, and I want you to know that you are supported 100% in meeting this little girl This is a big thing for you, but don't be too scared or nervous. Your sister is probably just as nervous as you. Or she might be really excited about this!

I'm sure that this will be a great experience for you both. I don't think she's going to hate you either! Most kids aren't that judgmental before they meet people, so don't worry about that. Just do your best to stay calm and be the great big sister you are.


The great artists of our time are the ones who created something timeless. But it was never them defining it that way.
Everyone has a story. What's yours?
