A decade has passed since you were born and so much has happened in the past 10 years. Today I sit here contemplating so many things, but one of those things is not the decision I made to have you adopted by a family of my choosing.
I remember the agonizing decision during the pregnancy to give you up for adoption. I didn’t know if I was doing the right thing. You were my baby and I was giving you away. I was so unsure about everything until I found your parents. Your mom was amazing and I knew that she deserved to have the child she so desired. I knew I had to give her that baby.
Now You’re 10!
It still amazes me that ten years have passed. In those ten years I finally got myself into a life that I can say that I am proud of. This is a life that I am okay with you knowing me in. We may not know each other now, but one day I hope to meet you and hope to have you meet your half-brother.
For now I sit here with my son on my lap showing him pictures of you so that he can know about his big sister he can meet one day! He might only be 2 years old, but I know that he loves hearing all about his big sister. I hope you know that he knows who you are and knows that he has more family out there in the world.
So today we all celebrate your birthday!
