I was adopted when I was 3 days old. I know that my birth parents loved me, and I also know that they did have a choice about giving me up. I know they did what was best for me, and for that, I love them. Because my birth parents gave my up, I have grown up in a nice house with a loving family, who have taken care of me for 16 years. I think adoption is a great option for those who are not ready for children, and also for those who are unable to have children.
