I don't know if this is true of every birth mother but Angie loved and still loves that little boy with all her heart. While she was pregnant with him she took such good care of him and even named him( Nathaniel it is!). She made him the most precious "life book" with stories and pictures of his birth family and a letter you will never be able to read without tears. What she did in giving us this child was the most unselfish thing anyone has ever done. To love someone so much that you are willing to sacrifice yourself so they can have something better than you can give him yourself. I honestly don't know that I could be that strong ~ but she is. In the end though, she still has him in her life and he loves her and can tell her so anytime he wants or she needs! He even picked out his own card for her birthday today (the rest of us had to get our own). As for us, we got so much more than Nathaniel out of all of this. We love Angie with all our hearts and she is and will always be a very special part of our family. It does my heart good to see her and Nathaniel together and to know that I could give her that gift. After all she has given us, it's the least we can do and I always tell people that you never know where you will find love in your life and we got a very unexpected dose from our Angel Angie.
Happy Birthday Darlin' ~ We love you.
