that is so sweet. A very special day for you both. It truly is fantastic that you're both able to stay in eachother's life. What wonderful gifts you've given to your Julianna.(((hugs)))
How sweet Shannan! Happy birthday Julianna!!!
I too am a birth mom and was reunited when she was 18. At that time she has a one year old daughter. My grand daughter will be 19 next month. and I was in the delivery room for my grandson who was 15 last month. Its been an odd ride for sure. A lot of bumps along the way. At least you will always know Julianna is fine. (that name made me look---a whole other adoption story in my life relating to that name---long story)Julianna--happy birthday! 10 is so much fun. double digits! enjoy your special day and special moms.
What a beautiful poem! Happy Birthday Julianna!
That poem is so touching it made me cry. Julianna is very lucky to have so many people that love her!
Since I read your tag awhile back, I think of you often.... Of course, today's post had my attention. The poem is beautiful, you are incredible and I hope that your day was too. Thank you for sharing.Denise G
What a beautiful poem...it totally made me cry. I think of the tremendously difficult decision it was for the birth mother of my daughter to make, and I'm thankful every day of my life for that decision. I don't know if my daughter will ever meet her, but she is always in my heart, though I never met her myself. Adoption is just something that involves so much love, I just can't contain it sometimes. God Bless you for making a decision out of love and bless her for being in your life in some way. What a gift. I am so happy for both of you. Remember, you truly are someone else's miracle.
Happy Birthday to beautiful Julianna! What a lucky girl to have such an unselfish and loving person as her birth mother. This might sound funny since I've never "met" you, but I have such respect for you, Shannan!! Hope Julianna's birthday was wonderful!!
Thanks for taking time to leave me a note!
