Everybody Came Together
I chose open adoption. My mom got mad at me. I had uncles and aunts mad at me. My grandma was mad at me. We adopt people into our family, but we don’t adopt out of our family. My aunt said it’s not giving away your baby; you’re helping somebody else.
I called the adoptive mom up. You don’t get to experience having your own child. Can you be in the delivery room with me?
I held him when he came out. When I placed Miles in her arms, her whole body lit up. This wonderful woman who was receiving our child was going to make her family bigger and stronger. In the end, everybody came together. My mom, she told me that I’m the strongest person she knows.
