I finally watched Juno tonight. I have been wanting to see it since it came out last fall but for some reason never watched it. I think it's pretty appropriate that I watched it around my birthday. As I was watching the movie I was reminded what an amazing person my birth Mother must be. I can only imagine how hard it was for her to feel me kick inside of her for 9 months and then to put me up for adoption. It really shows me how unselfish she is and how incredibly strong she is.
I often wonder if she thinks of me and if she imagines what I look like and the person I have become.
A few weeks ago I was thinking about being adopted and I think I have always felt somewhat rejected by my birth Mom. Well, a couple weeks ago I changed the way I thought of being adopted. Instead of feeling rejected I felt grateful that I had two women I considered a Mother. Both women helped me become who I am today and I am so grateful for both of them.
I pray that my birth Mom has been rewarded in life for loving me enough to trust me with someone else. She is my hero.
