I Will Leave This World Knowing My Adopted Daughter Is Secure
At the age of 44, I had an 11 year old daughter that begged for a sister. Well, by that time, my baby factory had become a museum :-). I could no longer have a child.
So, I put in for adoption and received the most wonderful blessing...a beautiful 10 pound biracial baby girl that melted my heart. We took her home when she was 3 days old. But on the ride home from the hospital after picking her up, she threw up all over the 11 year old daughter. Needless to say, she had second thoughts at that point about wanting a sister. But, luckily that all passed.
Both of my girls are the love of my life and there is nothing I wouldn't do for them. When I hear people using racial slurs, etc., I get infuriated. My baby daughter did not ask to be brought into this world and I feel blessed that her birth mother chose me over 3 others to be the mother of her child. I loved her, nurtured her, watched her excel in everything she undertook.
Three years ago, I helped her get through nursing school (while she was working a full time job), and she is now a specialized Trauma Nurse here in Indiana.
I am beaming with pride. I am attaching a photo of her when she was 3 weeks old so you can see the face of child that is loved unconditionally, irregardless of race, color, or creed.
