I am walking on air !!!!

Today was all I could have dreamed for ..and more. My son is an amazing man. We shared our lives and asked each other so many questions. He said he understood my choice and was grateful..he said his parents are wonderful and he had everything in life that he could want. He was so glad that I made the photo album for him. He wants to meet Cole and Savannah. He was blown away by how much his daughters look like my granddaughter Amelia...they do!!!  We are going to keep in touch! He is a very successful businessman with a beautiful wife and 2 lovely daughters. Before he left,I told him I have loved him from the day he was born and he said I could still love him now! My heart is so full of joy. I know that my choice was the best for him,that he is happy..his parents did a fabulous job in raising him,loving him and guiding him to the person he is today. I have such a feeling of completeness now. I know I am not his "Mother"..he has one,but he will always be my son.

Becky,Mina,Jeanie and Marie..thank you all so much! This was something I had to share with all my friends. It was part of what makes me who I am. I have found that there are few adoptees who have also placed their children for adoption. What made this so "different" for me is that I struggled with my feelings as a happy adoptee and those of a mother who placed here child. I will always think of my "adoptive" parents as my PARENTS and my birth mother as the woman who loved me enough to give me a better life. As a mother who placed her child, I want to be his mother....but my heart and mind tell me I am not his mother,he has one...and I am content with that . To be "Ann" to him and to know him will be a blessing,and more than I could have ever hoped for..because if I ever find my birth parents,I will know them by their names..not Mom or Dad,because I already have my Mom and Dad!!!xo
