Thanks Mom!! Happy Mothers Day! A note from an Adoptive Mom


Please go to this link to view a great little video

As an adoptive mother, this video holds a special place in my heart. I think there is often the assumption that birth parents (and birth families) are irresponsible or undeserving. This is simply not the case! These birth parents and their families are courageous, brave, and strong. In a world where many who encounter an unwanted pregnancy would simply end it, these individuals have chosen the harder path I carrying out the pregnancy. They chose to sacrifice and in doing so, they are giving these children the gift of life!!! They are giving those of us who cannot have children the amazing opportunity to be parents.

These birth parents place their children in adoptive families not because the don't love - but because they do love. They love their children more then themselves, more then the loss and pain and grief of giving them up. That is a type of selflessness and unconditional love that I can scarcely imagine. And for that they deserve to be respected and honoured.

So as we near Mother's Day, I want to say thank you for your courage, strength, and selflessness. Thank you to all the birth families out there and to our girls birth families in particular. Thank you for giving the girls

life and allowing us the honour of raising them - of giving us the gift of parenthood. Don't ever doubt how amazing you are and I know the girls recognize your unconditional love and sacrifice.so, they are giving these children the gift of life!!!
