I am passionate about adoption. I don’t expect everyone to be, but I certainly love educating people on the subject. It’s a joy to make others aware of the beauty adoption can bring to a family – and especially to women who are unable to conceive and experience birth. I’m one of those women. And I’m a mom because two young women made a plan for adoption and invited my husband and I to be part of that plan. I did not give birth to my children, but yes, I am still a “real mom” in every sense of the word.
