I Am An Adoptive Mother
I adopted my son at birth. I was blessed to be there for the birth and was able to bring him home 12 hours later. The nine months that it took for the adoption to become final were HELL! His BM could come and take him from me at ANY time, day or night. I think this, sadly, impacted my ability to fully bond with him during those first crucial months. I love him more than life itself, but I still wonder, with guilt, if it should have been "more".
