Being Adopted

The other week I was at a birthday party and someone asked me what it felt like having my own child coming from an adopted family. I thought that was a good question as I never thought about it before. I met my biological mother 8 years ago and have maintained a relationship with her and her family.

Having a child who is your flesh and blood and you can see yourself in him and think oh my he is mine, I think to myself what a selfless act my biological mom did giving me up. I couldn't see myself doing that.

I think it will have an effect on me as my family grows and they may have questions regarding it.

Thoughts on having a child

Well May is almost ending which means Nathanial is almost one. Where has the time gone.
He is walking, saying some words, crawling like a machine and getting into everything. He is so cute and the love of my life. Everyone says when you have a kid you will realize what love really means and how it feels to loves someone so much. I can totally see that with how I feel about my son. I have cried at times realizing that he is growing up..many times I don't want him to because I like him small. I look at some of the kids in the neighborhood or at the school I work at and I am thinking oh my goodness one day he will be that age.
I am not wishing his life away, If I could I would keep him small forever.

I don't really know what I am trying to say but it feels like this year has gone by so fast and everyone says each year they get older it goes by faster and slows down in the teen years. Sometimes I wonder if it could be the other way around.:)
