Pouting

I've been trying to write a post to explain my feeling without sounding whiny but I don't think I can. An online adoption community forum that I have called home is in an uproar and is no longer a place that I want to belong to. I'm hurt by some people I've considered friends, I'm morning the loss of a support system that I've relied on for so long and most of all.....I'm just pouting because my home is gone.

Ooh, I'm sorry... The internet can be pretty crazy sometimes, it seems like some people say things that would never even enter their mind in person.

I hope you can find a new home :-)

I'm sorry, too. I know I used to rely pretty heavily on an online forum for Russian adoption, but a lot negative people hung out there. It wasn't a safe place to comment or ask questions.

I'm sorry too. I have had to leave support communities that I had thought were safe.

The loss of the support is difficult, but for me it was the sense of having been betrayed that really hurt.

Long time lurker - but I have been there/done that, and had to run away from an online forum that had become too angry and unsafe. If you are interested, I now spend what time I have at http://www.adoptionfriendly.com/index.php which seems pretty normal. I don't post much but I read.
