Last year I wrote a pretty candid summary on how our first year together went. I shared it in hopes that it would encourage others who might be considering adoption. Anyone will tell you that adoption isn’t easy but then again…every mom that I’ve ever known has told me that being a mom isn’t easy. I still stand behind my statement from last year that even though it was the hardest year of my life it was definitely the best. Only now I have to tweak that statement a little because…
I know that adoption can seem scary at times…maybe it is the unknowns that scare us.
Our situation is a somewhat open adoption not because the courts determined that but because we wanted our kids to have a connection with the people who have loved them from the very start.
We have never met.
We have never talked on the phone.
There were definitely tears in my eyes.
