our adoption journey

journey

My appreciation of the relationship between first mother, adoptee, and adoptive mother has been deepening the past few weeks.

Once an adoption is final, the birth family is connected to the adoptive family forever. The adoptee is the link that joins them together. They are all family! That is exciting.

One of my favorite books to read to you, Moriah, is Motherbridge of Love. It’s beautifully illustrated, but it also shows that the child does not loose her identity with her first family when she gains a new family. I really love it.

When we come to this page in the book, this illustration makes me want to cry. It’s gorgeous. You have two mothers who love you in different ways. Together we are motherhood.
