When a couple adopts a baby, they are giving life to that child. There are ways that the birth mother, or birth parents, can see the child after the adoption if they want, but some of them simply want their child to have a better life than they can provide. A couple adopted a baby boy, and once all of the paperwork was processed, they received a letter from the birth mother.
Rachel, the mother of the baby, was 21 when she got pregnant. There were a few issues in her life that she was battling, such as depression and alcoholism. The father didn’t want to have anything to do with the baby. When Rachel’s best friend died, she realized that she wasn’t able to provide for her baby the way that she wanted.
Since Rachel had been adopted when she was younger, she knew that it was the best decision. When the process was complete, she shared a letter with the birth parents online.
She explained her reasons for giving her son up for adoption. Rachel wanted her son to have all of the advantages in life that she would be unable to give him. She states she wants to see her son, and that she loves him with all of her heart.
