quotes from birth mothers
They were very supportive of all my decisions. They worked with all my requests towards my open adoption. ... They always made sure that my wishes were complied by. I would recommend them to anybody because they were really good.
Do you ever feel sad about your choice?
I have moments where sometimes I do get sad but I don't have any regrets. I know that it was the right decision at that time... It may look scary and hard now but it will get better, and you will eventually move on with your life. But you will never forget that part of you.
Anything I needed, whether it was I had a headache at ten o'clock at night and didn't have Tylenol, they would bring it to me. They held my hand through everything and provided whatever I needed. St. Elizabeth has been extraordinary.
Don't be scared. There are options out there. Explore your options. Research everything. Make sure you're comfortable with your decision and don't jump into anything without having all the information. Adoption is the best decision that I've ever made. I've never had a day that I've regretted it but I researched it. I knew my stuff going into it. I prepared myself because I knew how hard it was going to be to say goodbye. I thought I was saying goodbye, but I wasn't. I was saying, "See you next time."
