I could write a book about my story, but I will try and keep it short. Like many, I never thought in a million years I would be in the position I was in and would have to make the choice that I did. My biggest fear was the end. Little did I know it was only the beginning.
I have done something in my life that truly made me proud of myself. All of the negative and hurt I had was completely replaced by peace. The family that I chose could not have been any better. Not only did they deserve my baby, but my baby deserved them. I thought I was going to lose so much when I handed her off to her new family but I gained more than I thought. I gained self-respect for myself and I gained a compassion and love for two strangers that I entrusted to love my little girl and do their very best by her.
If I could read out to every girl going through adoption I would let them know that you will be OK. Yes, there are emotions and a lot of hurt, but it fades especially knowing that what you are doing is truly amazing and the best thing for the baby. All I had to guide me was my faith, and my faith took care of everything!
