The Wonder and Beauty of Adoption


I just saw this picture on MeDenne's blog and I couldn't resist sharing it with you. One look captured my heart. I think about Noelle's birth mom often, she gave my precious little girl the gift of life. She tried to keep her for four days before she made the most agonizing decision imaginable. She must think of Noelle every day, I know I would. I wish I could tell her how beautiful her daughter is. So very funny, smart and talented as well. I wish she could see her one more time and know that the tiny baby that she wrapped in a clean, blue flowered blanket has a good life. Her daughter is loved and cherished in a forever family. I wish with all my heart that Noelle could some day meet the woman she prays for every night. To look into her birth mother's eyes and see herself reflected. I know that I would want that closure if it were me.

I LOVE that picture. You don't happen to know if one exists of a brown birth mom and child, do you?

I'm not sure if you know I am a birth mom or not, but I love that picture also. I often think about birthmoms of international adoptions. I was recently reunited with my daughter and it has been an incredible experience. Closure in some aspects, but the beginning of new things too.

Missy, I haven't seen one like that but that would be awesome! I hope you can find a similar picture. It is so beautiful.

Stephanie,
Thank you so much for sharing your experiences. I am so glad you were able to reunite with your daughter.
