Denalee Chapman September 26, 2015

Now, years after placing their children for adoption, this panel of birth mothers is asked about regret. As life has presented new opportunities, has even a bit of regret entered their minds These birth mothers may occasionally wish to spend more time with their children, they may have hardship and pain, yet they continue to stand by their choices to place. True regret doesn’t enter into the hearts of these birth mothers. They continue to be grateful for the parents of their children and for the choices they made. This doesn’t mean that they think their entire journeys were perfect . . . it means that they believe in the choices they made and they would not change them.
