I cannot begin to express just how thankful I am for Ellie's birth mom. When she chose us to parent her daughter, she gave us the most wonderful blessing anyone could ever give us. I will never know how hard that decision was for her because I'm not her. I can only imagine...
We never met Ellie's birth parents and that was their choice. We were prepared for an open adoption and honestly wanted one. But, circumstances prevented that. For Ellie's sake, I hope that one day she will be able to meet her birth parents and really know them.
There are many nights when I sit and rock my daughter. I tell her her story. I tell her how she came to us and how we were beyond happy the first time we held her. She was the answer to years of prayers. She was our dream come true. Her mother made that dream a reality. I pray that one day I will be able to tell her (in person) just how thankful we are for the plan she made for Ellie. Because of her plan, I am a mommy.
