Excellent. I’m glad to hear that you have friends.

She has to have the last word. It’s a thing with her.

"...I'm nothing special, but I've had a productive life with a daughter and two grandkids..."

Actually, you ARE special. Don't beat yourself up!

"...The truth of the matter is that maternal bonding is psychologically and physiologically complicated. Increased levels of serotonin and oxycontin accompany the early bonding with a child, with or without breastfeeding..."

I know you are correct, but I don't think I have ever held a baby that I did NOT instantly love, and I am a guy. Does that make me faggy?

Interesting that in all her statements she reflects continuously on how her child's perceived deficiencies impacted her, but fails to see how her obvious hatred of her daughter may have impacted the child. Generally, when a child refuses to make eye contact with an adult, it is from fear.

I sure would like to hear the child's version of all this.

I agree. Sad how many people here are judging her. But Freepers, I find, are nearly as perfect as Liberals.

But, apparently none as perfect as you.

What a telling handle you selected.

This woman sounds a lot like my own mother (a story best left untold).
