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.
