Stefan's birthmom and her family came to see us after Christmas. It was such a gracious time and a real good release for me. She brought me a lovely present I will always cherish. It's the pendant you just see above.
I have to say as an adoptive mother I've often felt second best, that people viewed me as not a "real" mother. I still carry that chip. N., you are such a trouper and such a good friend.
I've always done my very best to be open, loving and respectful with the birthfamilies and they have been truly amazing people. God bless them all.
