My Adoptivemother and My Birth Mother

A controversial topic in the adoption world. Language, names, history. I didn’t have a name. I have been underfire many times for the use of the word “birthmother”.
Karen says it well.
There was a woman who gave birth to me yet never named me. I had a woman who was to care for me, yet hated the sight of me.
I’m an adoptee who never had a mother, was never mothered. I’m one of the many motherless daughters.
