Don\'t Go in Alone
I went into reunion alone and clueless. Before being reunited with my son three years ago, I had never even met another birthmother. For all I knew, I might have been the only one on the planet! TV movies, talk show reunions and Dear Abby columns were the extent of my education on the subject. I...
