I love hearing cool stories about how much people love birthmoms, here are two recent stories.
1) I was watching So You Think You Can Dance...ya, i watch it, and I enjoy it... And I was touched to the bone about a young girl who found out she was adopted but who was not allowed to meet her birthmom until she was 18. Her birthmother died before she could ever meet her. However, she was able to read a letter from her birthmother and it told of her love for dancing. This girl decided to start dancing in commemoration for her birthmother. It was a very touching story. Not only did this make me extremely grateful for open adoption, but it made me feel good to know that she put a positive outlook on adoption for the world to see how beautiful that relationship could be.
2) Now my other story is the other day I was driving along a residential road. I see these two girls out there selling lemonade (probably around 11 or 12 years old) Next to their lemonade stand was a sign that read, "My birthmother loved me, Honk if you love a birthmom!" I just had to pull over, I gave them each ten bucks because I was thrilled with how awesome that is! She then explained that she was earning money to help her family adopt a new baby. She gave me a hug and told me thanks for being a birthmom! I am amazed time and time again at the love within this adoption world! It is FANTASTIC to know that I am part of an amazing group of people who have an unconditional love for all members of the triad!
Well I hope you all had an amazing memorial day weekend! Continue to have an amazing day!
