Post Adoption Depression


Post adoption depression is real. I am really glad that I came upon this article
on Melissa Fay Green's site before we traveled. I needed that assurance that it
is normal, what it is and that it goes away. And it did! A lot of moms and even some dads experience this and so it is good to come out and talk about it. It is not something you expect with child birth, although it is more talked about, let alone with adoption. But, it does happen and it is real and it does go away! Thank God it goes away! But, it is normal, so if you are feeling this way, you are in the company of many, talk about it and don't be afraid.
