There was a very special story posted on FOR BIRTHMOTHERS BY BIRTHMOTHERS. With all the negativity some of us have felt directed at us about our adoptions, this will warm your heart.
Here are a couple quotes of how this birthmother feels:
"Often my heart longs for her and I miss her sweet vanilla smell and her big beautiful eyes, but I know in my heart that I did what was right for her. That sweet little angel deserved everything and I was not able to give that to her."
"I undoubtedly could have been a mother to her and never once through my soul searching thought I wasn't good enough, but I knew that in my arms was not the place she was meant to be."

She ends her story with this quote from Orson F. Whtney, "No pain that we suffer, no trial that we experience is wasted. It ministers to our education, to the development of such qualities as patience, faith, fortitude and humility. All that we suffer and all that we endure especially if we endure it patiently, builds up our characters, purifies our hearts, expands our souls, and makes us more tender and charitable, more worthy to be called children of God."
