Why Ellen Cares
All around the country there are men and women who care about changing the perception of adoption! They're not all birth mothers, adoptive parents or adoptees though they still care. They're people just like Ellen...
Dear (13 year old) Seth,
Today you are 13… a teenager! Wow… I imagine what you’re like… What kind of young man you are becoming…
March 15, 1998 you became a part of your new family. This date holds so much more significance for me than your birthday, or mother’s day, or all the days you are in my heart and on my mind.
I want to say thank you for allowing us to adopt Vika into our family. It was not an easy decision for you to make and I want you to know that we will love and care for her like she is our own.
To My Beautiful Girl,
Almost 22 years ago, I fell in love with you, and the love has never wavered. When I found out that I was pregnant with you, my first thought was pure joy. I had always wanted to be a mother, and I saw you as nothing but a gift.
You’ve been on my heart all week, and I finally decided I just had to write to you. First, I want to thank you for allowing C.J. to join our family. We’re so eager and excited to meet him, and we love him already.
My Dearest Braden,
There are so many things that I want to tell you and even more questions that I long to ask, but finding the right words has been a bit of a challenge for me. So, I’ll start by telling you that not a single day has passed that I have not thought about you and wondered how you are.
