Feeling Guilty...Should I be?


Re: Feeling Guilty...Should I be?

    Thanks so much everyone--I thought we were making the right decision (that's why we made it), but needed to hear an outsider tell us so. I just have to brace myself for sideways looks or remarks from the extended family who don't know the whole situation...We are throwing a large and fairly expensive (for us) party soon which all family is invited to (a special occasion for us--we finalize our daughter's adoption :) ) and I'm hoping I'm being paranoid, but can't help thinking that people are going to think we are selfish and cold-hearted (you know "gosh--they can afford this, but Parent doesn't have electric"). .And I know it shoudln't matter what other people think of us, but it does.

     So thanks again for the reassurance-it does make me feel better to hear your responses.


    Easy solution - ignore sideway glances and answer anyone's comments and inquiries with a low-voiced, "I'm sorry.  There's more to the story than you obviously know.  I will not violate my mother's privacy nor disrespect her and my siblings choices by talking about them behind their back."
