Unhappy Everything is changing!:( - July 14th 2011, 02:18 PM

My mum just told me that she is adopting somebody! and that she is going on a date with a man ... i feel numb? Im so scared that he will turn out like simon .. because with simon it started with a date and "Nothing more" then it turned to him staying over, then moving in then yep.. abuse and shit...

And i got a call this morning from a woman of an adoption application form.. and my mum told me she might do it...
Aggghhhh i hate my life!

It serves a lot of functions in my life. I use it as a way to punish myself, I use it as a way to medicate myself, I use it for the tension release when things get too strong or too built up. –ditto

Faking a smile like always

- Pm me if you need help or a friend xx

Rought patch it seems. My mom has been a foster parent and has two adopted children beside me. It can be a HUGE change in life but it is also a learning experience and a chance to love and help a child who otherwise, might be all on their own. And as for your mums new beau, try to see it positively. If he makes her happy you can at least give him a chance.

Hey there, it sounds like there is a lot going on for you right now. Have you considered talking to your mom about this? Why don't you want her to adopt someone? Adoption is definitely a huge adjustment and a huge change for everyone. It might be hard for you to cope with. My advice to you, depending on the age and your comfort, is get to know whoever she adopts. You have to remeber that being adopted is going to be just as scary for that person, if not scarrier. So try and get to know them or bond with them if you feel comfortable. As for your mom dating, not all guys will be like Simon. Of course, we can never really know for sure, as we don't know the guy. I would suggest talking to your mom. Say something along the lines of "mom, I'm really scared things will turn out like they did last time..". Just be open and honest with your mom. And if you can't be with here, try talking to someone else you trust. I know it's hard, but don't hold everything inside of you.

But all in all, look at this as the glass is half full. It seems that things tend to go better that way.
