I heard you talking to a lady the other day, She was 60-years-old and at 17, she placed a baby up for adoption. She said she felt shame. Your words to her were so kind.
I have heard you talk to other people about adoption and I always get emotional. I am lucky enough to be the adoptive mother of a 6-year-old boy. I feel as strongly as you do that the birth mothers who place their children for adoption are among the strongest people in the world!
It's not easy to realize that giving a child a two parent home is best. I will also say, becoming a parent through the loss of another mother is not easy either.
Every adoption is different. There is a lot more I could say, but I just wanted to thank you for being a great advocate for adoption.
