I would like to give a message to birth mothers and soon-to-be adoptive families.
I am a mother of three. I would put four but he is not mine. B* was born from me but given to the best two people I could have ever chosen. I was struggling to get my children back from, well I won’t say, but I made a terrible choice in the man I allowed into our lives.
I am going to school for medical assistant. I also have parenting classes, therapy, and many things to do. So when I found out I was pregnant, I was scared. Not because I could not love this child, but because I had no time to give him. He was already precious to me just like my other three children.
I could not think of what to do. But my mother told me to go to CPO. I was elated, overjoyed, and just thankful. I found my family, the perfect couple. They needed a child in their life to make them complete. They were with me at least two hours and their story tore my heart apart. Their hopes and dreams gave me the strength to make the hardest decision I have ever had to make, to give up my child.
But I do not see this as giving him up, no. I see this as giving him the life I could not give him, giving him all the love I have by handing him to people who will love him more then I could. I have gained an entire new family by sharing the love of my life, a child.
They told me a story of not being able to have children. Their faces were so torn from grief and pain that I couldn’t help but love them, to want to hold them and say everything will be alright because I was sent here to help you, just like you will help me.
He is several months old now and growing so well. He loves to laugh, to play, to be held, and to just love. The mother is all I could hope for, for my little boy. And this is not meant to make her seem like less, but the moment I knew it would all be ok, is when the father held him for the first time. His eyes light up like Christmas and his face held pure joy. That face, that love, that pure astonishment that this is real, this is now his son, made me know that I made the right choice.
I made the right choice in choosing to give my son the life I could not give him. I have not regretted it a single day. I get to watch him grow. I get to be a part of his life and so does my family. I thank God for showing me how to provide the best life for my son, by giving him the best parents.
Thank you CPO for giving me the option of love and friendship.
A loving mother
