I Had Lunch Sunday With Old Birthmother
I had lunch Sunday with an old birthmother. Not old in years but 26 years ago she placed a baby boy with my help with a loving family here in Los Angeles. She came back to Los Angeles because the adopting mother had passed away and she attended the memorial. We talked about how the adopting parents had helped to redirect her life. She talked about how she never look back with regret but only thought about how this little boy would grow up and have the possibility of a better and greater life then she could've provided him at the time. She had an open adoption, and kept in touch with the adopting parents and this little boy throughout his 26 years.
I felt honored that she called me to see if I would be willing to meet with her. I jumped at the chance. I'm so glad that I did and had a chance to hug this beautiful selfless woman again after all these years.
