Oh, for pete's sake is how I feel about this. On Sunday, my oldest was checking her Facebook page. She said, "mom, how do you block somebody on Facebook?" I told her and offered to show her. She said, "Andrea is on here" with a disgusted look on her face. She promptly blocked her. I then told my other daughter that her birth mom is on fb and that it is completely her decision whether she blocks her or friends her. She got very nervous, but didn't want to talk about it. She hasn't gotten on fb since.
Now, their birth mom is illiterate, so someone else must have signed her up, and they don't have regular access to a computer, so it is not like she can do much damage. I think my girls were just shocked that she found this way to try and get back in their lives. My oldest wants nothing to do with her due to the past abuse. My other daughter has chosen to have no contact with her birth mom since she came home with us 3 years ago. When I have talked to her about it, she has said that her birth mom is just going to make her feel guilty or ask her for money, and I can't argue with that. I have left it up to her. It is obvious though that she has some mixed feelings about it and probably feels guilty for thinking about blocking her.
I wish the woman would just leave it up to the girls to decide what they want to do, but she is not that mature. Poor kiddos.
I guess I just wanted some commisseration. Ugh.
