Wherever You Are

Dear Birth Mother,

I hope this finds you well.  The weather here is fine.

It’s a beautiful, awful day.

I am thinking of you and the selfless life-changing decision you made.  Of your stated reasons.  And the ones you will never tell.

And what I know is true about us moms.

You are thinking of us today.  Of the promise you trusted in, that someone would love your child with their unique needs.

No matter how fantastic the celebration, you’ll wonder what’s up with us.  I’m getting the recognition for how these guys turned out.

Well.  I need to let you know.

Most days, I am pretty sure that anything good in them is all you.

They are amazing.

They stop people in their tracks.

They move in incredible natural gifts.

They make the issues unavoidable.

Your decision changed your life forever, but if I may say.  It keeps on changing lives. More than I can count. Every day.

Wherever you are, I honor you.

With love.  Fearless.  Like yours.








  1. I’m praying I can say this about the birth mother of my children, whom I have yet to meet.

  2. Maggie, Maggie, Maggie.

    It’s been a while since I’ve read something that left me with chills.

    That is a beautiful letter. So full of appreciation and a love for someone you don’t know. The world needs more of both.

    I can only imagine her letter of love to you. You have accepted the most perfect gifts and loved them into the sweet spirits they are.

    There is no doubt, she appreciates you as much as you do her.
