Life is a great journey – a journey that often entails trials and tribulations. But, it is life’s trials that sometimes provide us with the most precious gifts. Your journey in life has led you to adoption – a decision that must have taken a tremendous amount of courage to make. We both respect and admire you for making this decision. Our long journey has been quite different, and yet it seems that we meet you at a crossroads - a place where we have the same hopes and desires for a precious baby. This baby will always have two mothers; you, the birthmother, who gave life, opportunity and hope, and Kathleen, the adoptive mother, who will continue to nourish and raise the baby to always know and appreciate your unselfish love. As the birthmother, you will always have a very special place in our family. With us, your baby will always have unconditional love and two parents devoted to giving them the best opportunities in life.
