I Hope They Know

Sharing moments, memories, and love with our daughter's birth parents.

Candise Gilbert June 06, 2014

As an adoptive mother, I don’t have many days that go by without thoughts of gratitude for the journey that led us to our daughters. I feel a deep love and appreciation for their birth families and think often of them. For years we have had a wonderful open adoption with our oldest daughter’s birth mother and just recently made a connection with her birth father. I am grateful for open adoption, which has allowed me to share some of these moments. The phrase “I hope they know…” often goes through my mind. I worry that I don’t do as well as I should sharing these moments.
