Hey Shannon! Relationship Question for January 21, 2014

"Hey Shannon, when I was 16 years old I got pregnant and had to give my daughter up for adoption. Her adoptive parents asked for a closed adoption, and at the time I thought it was a good idea. I am now in my 30's, married and I have a 2-year-old son. I find myself often wondering about my daughter and would really like to meet her and see how her life has turned out. I contacted the adoption agency and they informed me her parents did not want me to have contact with her. I am really struggling with this and it's causing problems in my marriage. What can I do to move on from this heartbreak of never knowing my daughter?"
