Becoming a parent through open adoption
Written by Joy, Adoptive Mom
I will never forget the day Abbigail was born. I am forever grateful to our birth mom who allowed me at the hospital with her. Abbi was a c-section so I met her when she was 2 hours old. The moment she was placed in my arms I was in love. I never doubted that she was our daughter and we would love her forever.
Being a mom is the most rewarding job I have ever been granted. Abbigail made me a mom, but a woman, a very brave, special woman chose me and allowed me to be a mother. For that thanks to her will never be enough. Being an adoptive parent is a special gift…I know that I will love the next child chosen for us, as well as the birth mother who is making such a brave and selfless decision!
