‘You were the size of a poppy seed when I fell in love with you, barely a blip on the ultrasound screen. In an instant, I knew life would never be the same.’: Mom shares sweet ode to daughters

“I never believed in the notion of love at first sight, but when they first laid you on my chest and I looked at you through the tears, I knew it to be true. Unconditional, infinite love. When you are old and gray, and I am older and grayer, when the world has long stopped seeing you as a baby, I will look at you and still see the one I rocked in my arms. And I will love you.”

“I logged onto Facebook to find a message from a woman I didn’t know, claiming the expectant mom had told her she’d be placing her baby with them. Within weeks, I received a dozen more emails from different families claiming the same thing. Our dream suddenly became a nightmare.”

“The rush to the bathroom every morning, the little kicks in my stomach, the constant embarrassment – it was a lot to deal with at such a young age in such a small town. The guilt was eating at me. Then I found them. A picture of a couple and 2 tiny pairs of shoes underneath a sign reading: waiting for you.”
