    Tired Of Feeling Guilty For Not Being The Perfect Mother

    I am tired of beating myself up for my decision to "give up" my first child to be raised by other family members.  It was a good decision then and it still is.  It does not indicate a lack of concern or love on my part.  It is time to let those feelings go. ...
