Dear birth mom,
I know you didn’t plan me and you are living through a crisis, but will you please take care of yourself?
You see, I can tell whether you love me or not. I will have my first conversation ever with you in the last trimester of your pregnancy.
Please love me sacrificially, even if you’ve chosen not to parent.
Expose me to soothing music, rub your tummy and tell me you love me, and read words from the Bible to me.
Get me ready for my adoptive parents this way.
It is the greatest gift you can give to me, yourself, and them.
