I was adopted

My birth mother gave me up when I was about 2 months old. She couldn't take care of me and couldn't afford my medical needs. So she did what she had to do. My adopted mom took me home at 3 1/2 months old and adopted me when I was 2. I was never mad at my birth mother but I was confused on why... when I was young, I didn't understand and I thought that I did something wrong. But as I got older, I realized why she did it; especially when I got to meet her for the first time when I was 19. I believe that every child deserves to have a family and to be loved. Some women aren't ready to be moms and that's understandable. More than half the time, your never ready. You just have to take it step by step and day by day and you need to do what is best for that child.

    Exactly Lisa! I'm glad I was able to meet her. It took the doubt that she just didn't want me out of my mind.

      You have a good outlook. I had a friend who was the same way. She had health issues and was given up for adoption. She felt very blessed by her adoptive parents for adopting her. She really never had a desire to meet her adoptive mother. It's nice you could meet yours. Thank you for sharing.
        I try to inspire people (especially those who don't understand adoption). It's different for everyone. I met this lady at work who adopted a little girl from another country and the little girl kept asking her how she was born, where she was born, stuff like that. The lady would always tell her, you were born in the hospital, but didn't know how to tell her that she was adopted. The little girls mom was a teen and the man who got her pregnant said he had to leave but he would come back and marry her and they would raise the baby together. The man never came back and the young girl gave up the baby at birth. When I told the lady about being adopted, she asked how I handled it? I told her I always knew and when I was young I didn't understand it and was confused. The lady wanted to tell her daughter and asked me how? I was totally blown, but I told her that she will know when it's the right time if she really wanted to tell her daughter that she wasn't her biological mother.
