Day 10: The Easiest Decision
Hands down, no ifs ands or buts, peanut butter jelly time, easiest decision was THEM.
You hear Birth Parents say, I just knew. And there is NO other way for us to describe to you what we feel when we find these amazing parents. I KNEW the second I saw A walking up with their profile, that was it. I knew it. "S told me to give you a big hug and tell you she loves you." It was true, there wasn't anything behind it, I knew that woman, whom i'd never met, would still love me even if I wouldn't have chosen her. But I KNEW it was them. I am lucky that finding them was easy. It wasn't easy getting the BF on board, but he said it was right too. It was them:)
Day 11. First Adoption Memory
The First Adoption Memory. Lying on a bed. Staring at the celing. Wondering how in the world this all just happened. Why did i let it go that far? Why was I supposed to be this person for my baby? Why did it hurt so dang much?!!!!! And then, pure absolute peace. It didn't stay long. But it stayed long enough. #adoptionchallenge #birthmom #memories #adoption #adoptionmemory
Even sitting here... it gives me chills. Remembering that first night... hurting so bad... but feeling so much peace.
Day 12: Birthday
