Today is Thanksgiving in the United States. I know it's trite and cliché, but I feel the need to count some of my many blessings today.
I am thankful most of all for Roo. She is my favorite little person in the world. She changed my life forever, for the better. I am who I am because of her.
I am thankful for P and M. They are wonderful parents, the very best in the world. They love Roo so very much! She is blessed to be their daughter. I am blessed to know them.
I am thankful for an open adoption. P and M spoil me, really. They have sent me so many great videos of their baby girl. I get to see for myself how happy and clever and loved she is. How awesome is that?
I am thankful for all of the amazing friends I have made since I became a birth mom. Adoption friends are the best.
I am thankful for my family, especially my mother and my big brother Scott. Their love and support have gotten me through hard times and I couldn't have done it without them.
I am thankful for a Father in Heaven who knows me and loves me, and who is always there for me, forever, no matter what.
