I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of the love I have received from sharing my story. For a long time, it was only something I shared with a small amount of people. Then, I had the opportunity over the years to speak to youth groups, adoptive parents, other birth mothers, and social media accounts. I began to feel more comfortable with myself and my story. I realized that in order to be my true self, I needed to be able to talk about my whole life, not just my life after placement. I know that my story won’t always be viewed in such a positive light, and that’s okay! My hope is the educate people on what a positive adoption story can look like. I’m overwhelmed and humbled by the amount of support that has been shown.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
