Happy Birthday Angel Girl

Three years ago 12/28/2009 I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. So tonight I want to say Happy BIRTHDAY ANGEL GIRL!

I can’t believe it has already been three years. I love getting to see her and her beautiful family, I love watching her grow up into such a spirited girl.

This year we were able to go visit and boy did Angel Girl have a fantastic time visiting with her “shish-ter” Little Miss!

First time seeing her “shister”

She loved to hug her!

Today! A beautiful big girl! ❤

Our family might not be conventional. In fact it is very unusual but I am extremely blessed because of each and every one of them.

Even the dog got in on this family picture

Me with two gorgeous girls!

Being mothers brought us together – and now we are family. So grateful that Angel Girl has such a fantastic family and that I continue to be able to be a part of her growth, life, experiences, and can continue to learn from her and her family. So beyond blessed.


When people hear that I have a child that I chose to have adopted I get a combination of interesting responses, many of which include

I’m sorry


Wow how hard


But the truth is there is nothing to be sorry about. My birth daughter has a fantastic family of which I am still a part and that is not a sad thing at all. And while it may have been difficult to come to the decision of adoption, and while leaving a hospital without a baby was horribly difficult, and while my pregnancy was emotional, I can say that all and all it isn’t hard, because once I found her family and knew beyond a doubt that they were meant for her, and her for them, she no longer belonged to me in the same way and that was perfectly okay, because while Angel Girl has and will continue to teach me so much she was meant for the family and home she is in and is blossoming ever so wonderfully. It is a special thing to get to watch.


Happy Third Birthday Angel Girl!
