This morning our friend placed her baby for adoption.
What a courageous, loving, and selfless act!
She is my hero.
It has been interesting to look at adoption through the eyes of S and her family. Hopefully it has given me a little more insight into the emotions of our daughters' birth moms.
I am not very eloquent when it comes to expressing my deeply held feelings about adoption and birth moms and birth families. I just know that I love my daughters' birth moms so much! I will always honor them for their decisions to place their daughters into my family.
But more than that, I honor T and M for themselves, for their personalities and gifts. They are amazing women and I feel privileged to know them and to be a part of their lives.
