You get questions such as What would you do if your child wanted to run away from home? How do you feel about thumb sucking? What are your plans for meals? Do you plan to serve your children the same things you eat, why or why not? Get the picture? When taking the classes, I often asked myself what my parents would have given for answers.

I learned that my heart could break for birth parents, that I have compassion for all people involved in the adoption spectrum, that if I had the powers in me, all adoptions would be open adoptions, and more… so much more.

Call Me Mommy

You asked me,

Your 8-year-old self,

May I call you ‘’mommy?’’

I lost it.
