Well the first birthday has come and gone!! I thought I would be an absolute mess!!! But it was good! I did cry a little bit but overall it was fine! I wrote in my journal, looked at a few of the pictures I have from birth on up (thats funny because to be honest there is like a million pics). I decided yesterday was to be celebrated not grieved! Thankfully I have a fantastic group of friends who helped me through this milestone by calling and talking to me! I am so thankful to have gone through this experience. I was also lucky enough to get to see my baby a week before her birthday. Although it was a short amount of time, it was a good time! I was so happy to get to see her! She has grown so much and into a beautiful girl! I am so thankful to my Heavenly Father who has helped me through this trial and who gave me this blessing. I love you all!!!
Love Jessalynn

She is absolutely beautiful and what you did was a very courageous and unselfish thing - I am married and just recently found out I cannot have children - Your website is so lovely and hopeful I wish someday I would find a birth mother with your love and values so that I would be blessed to be an adoptive parent. - Denise mike_denise@mail.com
