I am a mother of adoption loss. Forced to sign away my parental rights to my first born child. I was not a child abuser, drug abuser nor was I a criminal. I was young and unmarried. This is not in the 1800’s this was in the late 1980’s. Still today, women in unexpected pregnancies face incredible pressures. This is supposed to be a developed nation. I have broken the silence forced upon me and thousands of women. I no longer feel the stigma nor shame that family and society placed upon me.
I am not a great writer, however, the real stories need to be told.
