Today, I'm feeling grateful. I'm so thankful for my child's birth mother for making the choice to place her sweet baby, who she loved so much, with our family. Because of her, we are the family that we are today.
How cool is it that we have a National Adoption Awareness Month?! I love it. It doesn't take much for me to get sentimental and emotional (any time of the year) about adoption and how it has blessed my life, but I think it's so great that we have this month where so many, all around country, are sharing their stories and celebrating how adoption as touched them.
In our case, our child was place with us as an infant but, of course, that isn't always the case. There are so many waiting children out there who need families. If any of you have questions about adoption, reach out, I'd love to help. And if I can't answer your questions, I can try to put you in touch with someone who can.
