I am a birth mom that relinquished a
child for adoption as a young girl.
Little did I know that I could never again conceive. I experienced profound grief in relinquishing my child. It remains the most painful decision of my life, to love this child enough to place her with a family who would raise her to be their own.
I returned into the world of adoption ~ this time as an adopting parent. My prayers were answered when I became the mother to two baby girls from Guatemala. They became the love of my life. At last, I had two daughters- the circle of adoption to adoption was complete. I found complete healing and utter love with my 2 daughters, my new family.
I went on a quest to locate my birth daughter. I now have a loving relationship with her. As strange as it may sound, adoption touched her life in more ways than one also. My birth daughter herself adopted a baby from Ethiopia.
I also went on a quest to locate my birth daughter's birth father's family. My birth daughter has met her half siblings. As strange as it may sound, her half sister gave birth and relinquished a child for adoption! As you can tell, adoption has touched my life in many ways!!!
I want to share the message to others
that the heart knows no boundaries,
no color ~ only love. I started a doll
company about adopting baby dolls
from around the world based on my
own personal experience.
Think how wonderful it would be for an adopted child to see their friends playing and loving an ethnic baby doll. It would give self esteem and a pride in their heritage and it would teach biological children more about adoption and loving without limitations. Everyone has a right to celebrate the beauty of their heritage. After all, children see only through eyes of love.
I believe if adoption was addressed more, that people would understand it better. Too often, people ask questions about my dark haired, dark eyed girls, "Where did they come from?, "Are they sisters?", "They are so fortunate to have been adopted".
I always down play questions like this because people generally mean well, but they just don't understand it. It is I that is the fortunate one! I'm sure that any other adoptive mother would agree.
