Sioux Falls, South Dakota celebrated National Adoption Month in a variety of ways. One way was an event produced by the Loving Mother’s Organization to showcase talent and bring awareness to adoption. Performers included adoptees, birth parents, and adoptive parents.
One birth mother, Monique, talked of the pain associated with the actually sweet event of placing her daughter for adoption. “It’s hard … You’re breaking your own heart, but you’re healing someone else’s,” she said. And Monique ended the interview with this tender and true statement: “In the end, you’ll feel it. You’ll feel happy.”
