Dear Birthmother,

My dear friend,

We just finished the adoption classes today and my thoughts are heavily thinking of you. I don't know who you are or where you are at, but I know that someday we will meet.

After attending 2 days full of classes, I wish to express to you some of the things that stood out to me. My favorite part of the adoption classes were 2 parts. First and foremost, the birthmother panel. I met 5 incredible women that have recently just given up a baby for adoption. It was such an wonderful and sacred moment to hear their side of the story. Their struggles and their experiences. These girls had limited support and made huge life decisions on their own. I have nothing but the utmost respect for any birthmother. I was touched by their courage to do what they felt was best for their child and I also had sympathy of missing that child and trying to move on with their lives. I cannot comprehend the emotions that you must be going through as you are making your decisions, but I believe that this experience will be the toughest and the most rewarding experience in the eternal spectrum.

My other favorite part was the adoptive parents panel. The more and more I get to know adoptive couples, the more I am noticing that there are incredible couples out there. Their stories are incredible also. I am thankful for the grueling and complicated process that we all have to go through to be able to be considered for adoption. When I was talking with Lorna, she knows that she is presenting the best parents out there for the birthmothers.

Tonight, if you are going through any type of struggle, please know that I am thinking of you and sending you the most positive vibes I can give. You are not alone and that their are many people out their praying for you and only wish the best for you and your situation. Most of all, to me you truly are a miracle!
