St. Patrick’s Day has special meaning for me because on March 17, 1998 I met my son’s future adoptive family. And so today, I am thankful for them.
Aden, my (almost) 13 year old son and his amazing family have been gracious and generous enough to allow me and my enormous family to be a part of their lives ever since our first meeting, so many years ago. Watching Aden grow from the very beginning in my belly to now a teenager is nothing short of amazing. I am humbled by the fact that I am actively in his life and know not many birthmothers are given such a gift.
Aden is such a sweet kid with an enormously kind heart. I cherish our relationship and love him dearly. Thank you O’Ds for being amazing parents and always welcoming me with open arms.
