What Led Us To Adoption
Michael came from an adopted family, where both he and the sister he grew up with were adopted from different families. Although in those days, adoptions were typically closed, Michael’s parents were always very open about the fact that he was adopted and shared what they knew about his birth parents. A few years ago, his biological sister found him through a private investigator and let him know that although the decision for their mother to put him up for adoption wasn’t easy and she thought about him all the time, she was sure it was the right decision until the day she died. From that point on, Michael’s love for his birth mother’s decision was so overwhelming that we both knew adopting a child was the only option we would consider in building our family.
