This week I was fortunate to have an opportunity to meet another birthmother. We met up at a coffee shop and chatted for a bit.
Have you ever walked away from meeting someone new feeling just plain excited that you got to meet them? That's how it was in this situation. She's fresher into the birthmom journey than I am. Even still, it was so absolutely awesome to hear someone talk about their journey and just GET where they are coming from.
Adoption journeys, from all sides of the triad (adoptive parents, birth parents and adoptees), are so wildly different. I enjoyed hearing her story and telling mine. I hope we can meet up again and continue our birthmother journey together, connected.
