I am so blessed! I realize this for many reasons. One of my dear friends was adopted as a child and she is searching for her father. She has gone through a lot and you can read about it her journey here. Through this time of reading about her personal journey I have realized just how blessed I truly am. You see I was born my mother had the option of putting me up for adoption. My mother was very young, 14 to be exact and although my father was 22 he too could of said I don't want this. But my parents went against the flow back then and fought to keep me. They got married before I was born and chose to start their family at a young age. So many other young girls were forced by their parents to give the child up. I am so glad my parents fought to keep me. My mom sacrificed a high school education to keep me. She went back when I was in High school and got her GED and went to school for cosmetology. I am very proud of all my mom has accomplished in her life. She not only went back to school, but she raised 5 children, owned her own business and is now semi retiring and if anyone deserves it she does! I love my mom!
