Talisa sent us this post describing her positive experience planning for her daughter’s adoption and asking others to share their experiences.
I know that making the decision to go through with an adoption is hard. I know it was hard for me; just for the fact that I had to say good-bye to my little girl. I know that it takes a strong and mature person to do it, and everyone who supports me with my adoption has told me that.
My adoption plan is open adoption, and I am proud to say that I love how everything is going for me with my adoption plan. I know that I was depressed for a good two or more weeks about doing the adoption, but with all the support that I was getting, it helped me realize that things happen for a reason, and that the family I chose to take care of her and call her their own is more than just the adoptive parents. To me, they’re like family, and I couldn’t be happier with them. Being the birth mother made me realize that even though I went through with the adoption, it just goes to show how I was thinking about what’s best for my daughter.
So therefore my question for those who have, or are in the process of going through with an adoption, how do you feel going through the whole process from the beginning to the end?
