‘I don’t know why I feel this way, but maybe I am your birth mom.’ Could I handle another heartache?’: Adoptive mom says ‘watching another woman birth your child is a one in a million miracle’

“I said, ‘This isn’t happening. This is a false alarm.’ I had a tough decision to make. Do I go with our soon-to-be daughter, or do I stay with our expectant mom? She reassured me, ‘You are supposed to be with your baby.’ These types of mothers are part of the miracle.”

‘An older man said to my sister, ‘Let me get a taste of that.’ He was sticking his tongue out and wiggling it. She instantly turned red. She was 12. He laughed and I did, too. I don’t know why, but I did.’

“This is what it REALLY means to be a man. It’s kissing my wife’s stomach and telling her she’s beautiful, even with her c-section scar and stretch marks. It’s telling my daughter ‘Honey, OWN that Jersey’ when she comes home from school crying after a boy told her to take it off because girls ‘don’t play’ sports.”

‘I have something to show you.’ My mom handed me a box of unseen letters and cards from my birth mom. Talk about crazy!’: Young woman discovers birth parents, invites them to her wedding

“I always knew I was adopted. I don’t know how, but I knew. I went up to my room and sat on the floor for hours, sifting through letter after letter, card after card. Seeing photos of my birth mom, her husband, and other children. They all looked happy and fulfilled. The box triggered a tidal wave of emotions I’d bottled up for 18 years.”
