I was adopted at the tender age of 3. I was adopted into a loving American family. My new parents had 2 older biological children. We all had a fun childhood and I could feel the love, even though we didn't say "I love you" very often. Now that I'm all grown up, my relationship with my brother and sister is rather non-existent. We only get together if mom sets up the event (holiday or birthday celebration). We don't call eachother on the phone, nor email. I live only 3 minutes away from my brother and 3 hours from my sister. I hear what's going on in their lives via our mother. She doesn't seem to mind. I wish we were closer. But I just don't feel the love anymore. When we are together, our conversations are obligatory and forced. I really am interested in their world, but it's just painfully obvious that the feeling isn't mutual on their part. We all have children of our own. You'd think we'd be able to bond over the children. If there's anyone out there w/ some valuable insight on this situation, I'd love to hear from you!
