I have found through even the last few days that the more I open my mouth about my adoption experience, so do others.

-Like on Monday, when I was shopping, me and the lady working started talking about adoption. She is an Adoptive Mom. Awesome!

-Or for some reason I started talking about how I was a birth mom in one of my classes. A girl told me later she too is a birth mom. Awesome! We talked for a good 20 minutes after class.

Through this experience we all have a special bond. A bond of friendship, of love, and of mutual respect. When I meet someone else who has been blessed by the miracle of adoption too, I feel a special connection. I feel like they understand, they get me.

Share the adoption love. :)

I think it's great that you feel comfortable enough to talk about adoption. Are people more friendly towards you about it? Back in the 90's people were pretty harsh to me. So, I kept quiet through many years and am now starting to be more open. It helps that I found my daughter and have met her now.

Most people are friendly. Some act awkward about it, but I'm use to it. Back 10, 20, 30 years ago, birthmom's weren't treated very well. I'm sorry you have had so much negativity. I feel like those people are the ones I am supposed to teach how great adoption is.. because they have no clue.

I hope you feel more comfortable sharing your story. There is power in your story. :)
