My daughter is graduating this week and she wants to invite her birth mother. Our daughter came to us when she was 2 1/2 months old. The birth mother did not have any contact with her again until my daughter asked (at age 4 yrs.) to see the lady who's belly she was in. I contacted her and they met. At that time the B M asked if she could keep in touch and I said yes. She called once and they met one more time. Then when my daughter started middle school she became very good friends with a girl that ended up being her maternal cousin. Then at that time she got back in touch with her B M and occasionally would see her B M when she would sleep over at her cousins. My daughter has been disappointed several times on holidays waiting for that phone call or card. I just feel that this (Graduation) is a time to celebrate all of my daughter's accomplishments in school and in life. I would appreciate ANY feedback on this subject. Especially if you yourself have gone through this very situation.
