Our youngest daughter is 2 1/2. Birthmom initially wanted only letters & pictures, but that evolved into into visits and somewhat regular communication. About 9 month ago B-Mom disappeared. Thanks to the internet, we were able to track her down in state prison (1.5 to 3 years). We also learned that it was a plea deal & she knew she was going away a head of time. She didn’t tell us about the charges or sentence, we suspect that she was a bit embarassed/ ashamed. Mother’s day is approaching & we aren’t sure how to handle it…Do we send a card & letter to the agency & pretend we don’t know? Or do we send a card, ect to the prison & express our love & support to her no matter the ciircumstance?
