Your story has meant so much to me. I don't think words can express. Thank you for sharing. I am a birthmother and I became one at a time when LDS adoptions were only allowed to be closed. I have counted down the days when I may possibly reunite with the baby boy (now 10 yrs old...so 8 more years to go) I placed for adoption. I long to embrace him and fear he may not have the same enthusiasm. It is my greatest fear. After reading your story, I realize that even if I am not able to meet him as soon as he turns 18 or the months or years that follow...I must have faith in the Lord that when he and I are both ready it will happen. Thank you for allowing me to see it from the perspective of the adoptee. I pray that he and I can be in tune with the Spirit and allow the Lord to ready us for what may come!
