‘I feel like you’re supposed to be her mom.’ Her voice was shaky. ‘Are you sure?’: Adopted woman insists her adopted daughter is ‘not broken,’ although adoption is ‘beautifully broken’

“I can’t imagine what must have been going through her mind. ‘I heard you were wanting to adopt,’ she said. ‘I have a 2-month-old little girl.’ Speechless. How could this be real? ‘Mira, I wanted to call you sooner, but I didn’t know how to say it.’ My husband was away on a 2-week rotation with the Navy. Without hesitation he responded, ‘go get her.’ You go get our baby.’ So, I did.”

‘My kids were born addicted to numerous street drugs. Their bio mom, then and now, has chosen addiction over them.’: Same-sex couple take in 3 ‘neglected’ children, long to become a ‘big, permanent part of 5’

“My boy was found by CPS unattended with a full, wet diaper and a bottle of curdled milk. His 4-year-old brother answered the door because their bio mom and her boyfriend were asleep with the door locked. My wife and I have been to every appointment, school function. We tuck them in every night, kiss every boo-too, and love them more every day. But we’re not yet their ‘parents,’ legally. This woman, who has a total of 6 kids, the most recent also born addicted to drugs is their ‘mother.’ We don’t ever plan on stopping until we have officially adopted our babies.”
