Born with a Purpose
"She also knows that her birth family loves her just as much and that she wasn’t unwanted, that she wasn’t a mistake." #BraveLove
In Light of Being Known
An adoptive mother recently introduced us to a children’s book called There’s NO Such Thing as a Dragon. “Billy Bixbee was rather surprised when he woke up one morning and found a dragon in his room. It was a small dragon, about the size of a kitten.”
To My Sweet Etta,
I’ll start off by saying I am proud to be your birth mom. I am proud that I trusted and believed in God’s word and that was adoption. I know in my heart God had me picked out to be the special woman to carry you for 9 months for your Mommy. Sometimes it’s hard to understand what God is doing (and believe me at first this was very hard for me to understand). Though the minute I met your parents, I 100% understood God’s doings.
She Changed My Life
"I also played a part in completing a family that could not have done it without me." #BraveLove
To The Moon
"Of two things I am certain 1) that my daughter loves me and 2) that I made the right choice. I am a birth father and 15 years ago I chose to place my daughter, Belle, in open adoption." - Rick
Dear Precious Little One,
We haven’t met you yet and have no idea when you will join our family. But we trust God and know that He’ll bring you to us at the perfect time. We can’t wait to welcome you into our family with unconditional love.
I never dreamt that we could place a baby for adoption and still get to be a part of their life. Making the first of several major decisions, my boyfriend and I jumped right into counseling sessions...
Dream a Little Dream
"I thought my life was over, but little did I know, it was just beginning." #BraveLove
The Secret Inside Me
"In spite of my new love for the baby, keeping him never crossed my mind. But I knew I could no longer give him to just anyone. I owed this baby the best parents I could find him." #BraveLove
The Potter and Clay
Clay discovered that he was the center of one of the greatest acts of determination and heroism he’d ever heard of, and Priscilla re-opened the deepest wound of her childhood. #BraveLove
