I am a birth mom to a beautiful little 3 year old girl. I am married to my soulmate who also is the birthfather to our daughter. Together we travel the adoption journey as one . We parent two precious little girls, MuRae 6 and Kynlee 5 . After having Kynlee we decided that having my tubes tied would be the right thing to do . We had our girls and I have my son JD from a previous marriage and he has a son also.
So that's what we did. I had my tubes tied and our family was complete.
Months later I began feeling tired, feeling the exact same way I felt when I was pregnant . I had a appointment set with my Obgyn already for a check up from having my tubes tied. So I go to the doctor only for a check up to find out something that has changed our lives FOREVER . I was pregnant !!!
Now growing up as a child, I knew the word adoption but never really knew the true meaning of adoption. It was never something talked about or even seen. The second I learned I was pregnant the idea of adoption came to me. I never shared the thought with anyone until a couple of days later. I went to a pregnancy center nearby to talk to someone about the thought that had came to me .
It just so happened the lady that had been handed my file to open the door and call out my name and talk with me on what brought me in there was an adoptive mom. I had told her, "what I'm about to say is going to make you think that I am a terrible person." She listened. I said, "I am pregnant and adoption is my decision." With a tear rolling down her face she said. "You are not a terrible person, Someone just like you made me a mother."
So with my resources I go home and share my thoughts with my husband. Of course he looked at me liked I was crazy and wasn't feeling what I had felt about adoption because the feeling that had come to me didn't come to him. After talking the next day we contacted an adoption agency.
The journey began. It was a long, tough, everyday changing journey for us both. We cried, we hurt, we changed our minds several times between the two of us. We felt shame, guilt, we felt it all . But the one thing we felt together and strong was God's word to us. His word was Adoption! I had become pregnant after having my tubes tied for a reason and that reason was God's plan for adoption . We believed Him and we trusted Him.
Today we are birth parents together! We did it! We turned a beautiful couple into a family. We gained another part of our family. We chose and open adoption and together we get to see our birth daughter grow. We get to watch our three little girls visit with one another. We get to watch this special little girl's life as she grows. We love her and she loves us. Adoption is beautiful !!
