"I never realized the full impact of how powerful adoption was until I had a son of my own."
My adoption story is one I have grown to love. Although difficult to understand in my younger years, the compounded love I feel from so many different individuals is profound. I was adopted at birth. My biological mother had to make a very difficult decision but did what she knew was best for me. My adoptive parents had yearned for a child, and she had the opportunity to give them that gift. I never realized the full impact of how powerful adoption was until I had a son of my own.
The emotional journey of pregnancy and the intimate bond with a child is impossible to explain or compare. It takes a truly selfless individual to create life and bless another family through the process. Truly a brave love.
Today I can truly say how grateful I am to my biological mother giving me life and to my adoptive parents for showing me how to live it. The powerful and unparalleled demonstration of love is nothing short of amazing. I have the deepest appreciation for all involved in the complex beauty of the adoption process and am blessed to be a product of it.
