Day 1. How I relate to Adoption
I am Birth Momma. I am proud of that. It took a long time to be proud of that, but I am now.
I am a Birth Mom. I am a real Mom. I am a sister. I am a daughter. I am a friend. I am a fighter.
I am a listener. I am a promise maker. I am a faith holder. I am a lover. I am a procrastinator.
I am a perfectionist. I am me.

Day 2: Bravery
"Brave. Walking out my patents front door. I didn't want to do it. And it to an unbelievable amount of bravery to do it. #adoptionchallenge #naam #brave #adoptionabc" taken from my Instagram
It really was the worst feeling... walking out my parents front door, to take that angel boy to his mom and dad. I didn't want to. I even asked BF if we could just not go. If we could just stay there. It made me sick, I still don't know how I got from my parents, to the car, to the meeting place, and back home. Its a blur. But It was necessary, and it was absolutely right.

Day 3: My Family
I know, the quality is well... meh. And Lou's face, well it was WAY to bright to face that way.
But this is my family. This is what I have to show 10 years later. I don't have a degree, I don't have lots of money, I don't have a bunch of travel stamps. I have a husband, who works so hard. I have 3 beautiful children who are all so different its hurts. And i love them. Its far from perfect, but we are still in the beginning:). I love them. They love me. And its a perfect imperfection.
