“Best day of my life!” When those amazing eyes opened and looked at me, my heart melted and was his forever. Growing up, I could never have imagined the pure joy that I would have felt holding my son as he spent his first few minutes of his life in my arms.
Marrying my wife was an incredible day and she continues each day to love and honor our union and now with our little boy I feel complete. I knew after meeting his birth mother that he was growing in my heart and I hoped and prayed that when I held him it would feel right. The feeling was beyond words. I know that words could not give the AWESOME feeling any justice. I nearly had to pinch myself to make sure this was real!
When we met his birth mom and she told us that she had chosen us to adopt her baby, it was such a surreal feeling. I knew what I was hearing and we had longed for a baby, but I also knew that adoption is a long process and I wanted to protect my family from any hurt. It was a matter now of “being all in”. The adoption agency had told us we would know when it felt right and it would be important to “stay steady on the course”.
Our birth mother is a remarkable woman!! She chose life for this precious baby boy and she made the ultimate sacrifice for her son and then chose adoption to give him the best life ever. “Yes – I will honor and love her each day and ALWAYS tell my son how much she loved and cherished him… More than herself, more than anything! Thank you Act of Love Adoption Agency for bringing us together in this beautiful adoption.” Forever Grateful Adoptive Dad
