This celebration hits close to home because our daughter is adopted. I can say first hand that adoption is an amazing thing. The birth moms who make this decision are so incredibly strong and giving. I can't imagine carrying a baby around growing in your tummy for 9 months and to then give that precious baby to some random people to raise as their own.
There is actually a lot more that goes into it. The adoptive parents have to go through a ton of training and preparation and the birth mom has counseling. If you have an open adoption you meet the birth mom several times and create a relationship with her. Then she gives you the gift of parenthood and a tiny baby to love and cherish. It's a life long bond and relationship that works. The love you get for this baby is crazy.
I can't imagine life without my daughter and I wouldn't have her if adoption wasn't an option.
