Although adoption is an emotional rollercoaster– and at times during placement and birth you don’t know how you will get through it as the birthparent– there can be times of happiness and peace.

The first time I saw this video, I was pregnant. I didn’t like it because she was smiling in all the pictures. Now I see know that it is okay to be happy, it is okay to peaceful. This video shows in every picture just how much this birthmother loves her birthchild.

At 3:15 you see the inevitable pain a birthmother goes through when getting through the final moments of placement.

Grab the tissues, ladies and gents. This is a good one.
