So poignant, from a birth mother
As I sat there broken and alone
You saw opportunity
As I sat there and cried my eyes out saying I can’t do this,
I don’t want to do this . . .
You reminded me of things I had said previously that would discredit my parenting.
When I was scared,
You reassured me with . . .
“This is the best thing you can do for your child.”
“This is the most selfless thing.”
“Your child will thank you for this one day.”
When I was down and out
You saw the perfect moment to snatch my baby.
And now, a piece of my soul walks outside of my body. Breathes in air that we don’t share, hurts in ways I’ll never truly understand, has a really tough life in front of him.
It’s truly tragic, and what’s left of my soul shatters, crumbles, breaks with every breath I take.
How is adoption beautiful ? Tell me that !!
