one of the FSA chapters was looking for quotes on adoption and I liked these ones:)Just wanted to share. I do think she should have had some quotes from birth mothers though. I will post some of those later.
“I didn’t give you the gift of life, But in my heart I know. The love I feel is deep and real, As if it had been so. For us to have each other Is like a dream come true. No, I didn’t give you The gift of life, Life gave me the gift of you.” – Unknown
“Adoption is when a child grew in its mommy’s heart instead of her tummy.”
“Not flesh of my flesh, nor bone of my bone,
but still miraculously my own.
Never forget for a single minute,
you didn’t grow under my heart, but in it.”
It may sound cheesy and cliche but We have that growing feeling in our hearts for our future child already. Brandon and i wonder and chat daily about this tiny person and the "package" they will come in/with! He, not having an open adoption, wonders if our future child with have a neat birth family too. But He wonders if we might be putting too much pressure on the whole
" we'd love a very open adoption" sentiments when , in fact, our future birth mom may not be ready for that. But, when she is, we will be ready! So, readers, or people checking us out- NO pressure- we want what you want when it comes to openness:)
