Saw your adoption journey and had to thank you for letting me see the "other side of the coin" - the adoptee's side... I am a birth mother who gave my son up for adoption in 1971. I am white and the father was black. My parents wanted nothing to do with the baby and gave me an ultimatum that if I kept the baby they would have nothing to do with me. I reluctantly gave him up because at 17 years old I did not know what else to do. The adoption agency told me that i would NEVER NEVER NEVER see him or have any contact with him for the rest of my life. I believed them.
My adopted son found me last year and it has been truly a blessing.
I did not realize - until I saw your show - the pain and emotions he went through in making his decision to find me. I only knew all the emotions from "my side". Thank you. It makes me appreciate him and realize what he went through !!!!!!!!!!!!!
