Letter from a Birth Mother: Choosing a Closed Adoption
Choosing to place you for adoption was one of the hardest things I have ever done. However, I wanted to have a future brighter than the one I could provide. Choosing a closed adoption was even harder, but I knew that it would be hard for me to be part of your life. Especially knowing that you would never fully be mine again after you left my arms. There are some days that I wish life were different back when you were born; however, I can’t change the past.
Looking back, I am so glad that I made the choices that I did. My adoption caseworker says that your adoptive family loves you so much, and that warms my heart. Knowing that you are happy and healthy makes up for all of the painful moments I endured.
I can’t help but imagine the little person you are becoming. Nothing will ever erase the love I hold for you in my heart. Even though I am not involved in your life, and you may not know much about me, I am always thinking of you.
Your birth mother
