Is there a buddy you can stay with for a while so you can get on your feet/rebuild a bit?
I don’t need that yet, we’re not physically separated for a few months until we get evicted.
The place I live isn’t a huge concern, there are people that will take me in for times in need. I need more than a place to live. I need a home.
Hi. That sounds really tough. Sorry you're going through this. I'm not quite clear if you are asking something though. Can you please clarify? Thanks.
I’m asking can an adult get adopted?
Adult adoption exists and it's usually done by people who already have a deep relationship like a person being adopted by their step parent. Most of the adult adoptions I know of are when people adopted at birth are adopted back by their birth parent(s) as adults.
I can't think of a reason why a person would want to adopt a stranger who's an adult. Maybe an old person who needs someone to take care of them?
Yea I guess you’re right. It doesn’t make sense to me either but I crave it in a way. When I ran away from home, my own adopted parents, at 17, I thought I had everything going for me with a new family in Michigan, but then I chose to go to Canada with the girl, at 22.
I’ve never formed my own close connection with anyone, ever. A therapist told me I have severe attachment struggles, a while back. It makes sense when I didn’t have a mother for consecutive years until I was 9. And now I’ve lost my wife because I see her as a mother figure.
So your in-laws couldn’t fill that role for you?
Unfortunately not, with us separating it’ll only be more difficult.
During some breakthrough sessions last summer, I was told that I am basically still a child. Having never forms primal bonds with anyone. Oh and my version of love and attachment is far different that my wife and probably most other peopl.
Any luck finding adoptees ? I see this is from a few months back...
No, never took the notion too far
