I truly believe that the heavens gave three gifts the day our daughter was conceived. The first gift was to her. It was the gift that put her on the path to us. A family who is absolutely and completely in love with her. Who celebrates every milestone and works through every hiccup. A family who can provide her with stability and opportunity. The second gift was to us. She is the most treasured of gifts and we are so joyous to have her in our family. Again, to articulate is difficult for me as she is so amazing and our feelings are so overwhelming. The third is a gift to her birth mother. I am not sure what this gift looks like but I know that she was shone down upon. Perhaps the ability to move forward with her life, to make decisions that positively affect her future…I don’t know.
