Meeting the birth mother of our son was an experience I will likely never forget. It was a time where I felt inadequate to even speak, and just wanted to absorb everything that was shared. She was full of emotion and love, grief and happiness, and reaching depths of emotions while fully respectful to everyone involved. She showed maturity beyond her age. The fact our birth mom could see below the surface and knew we would be great parents is so very humbling.
Through adoption, we were given a beautiful gift by our Savior through the hands of a beautiful young woman who chose us in spite of our shortcomings, to raise and nurture her baby. Through the adoption journey, I have never felt more humbled and more in tune with God’s love for us.
