Today’s Adoption Good News comes from Jill. She has such a sweet view of open adoption.
April 24th is my favorite day of the year, it is the day I became a mother for the first and second time.
April 24th, 2008 my sweet daughter, Bailey, was born. We have been blessed to have been part of an open adoption. Our second birth mom (Rachel) came into our lives because of a referral from the our first birth mom (Mikelle). Because of our strong relationship with Mikelle she trusted us enough to tell her friend about us. We never knew loving our first birth mother would lead to a second. On Bailey’s second birthday she was given the gift of becoming a big sister to our sweet Ella. Bailey talks about her second birthday like it was the best day of her life (even though her birthday party was cancelled)!
Adoption is the greatest blessing I could have ever asked for. My husband and I have another blessing to be thankful for that will be arriving in July. After almost 13 years of marriage we are experiencing our first pregnancy. We have had an amazing journey becoming parents through adoption and we wouldn’t change a thing.
