To The Mom Who Gave Up Her Children

Hi, 

I don’t know if you remember me, but I got word not too long ago that you had given up your little ones for adoption.

I often wonder how people can choose to no longer be in the lives of their little ones. I always question what goes through the mind of a parent who decides to move away from their children because their partner has made it difficult for them to be around.

Oftentimes, I will argue that no matter what, you have to stick it through. But your situation made me think twice.

It’s okay, I will never judge you. 

I remember finding out you were pregnant and the pain your own parents had put you through. I then heard why you had to give your children up for adoption and all the things you went through with their father.

I was told about the terror you lived and how you were fortunate to leave that behind. 

Although I don’t know what I would’ve done in your situation, I do know that you did what you felt in your heart was the best decision for your babies. 

I want you to know that I admire your strength and your willingness to move forward. My heart would break the very moment I had to leave any of our little ones behind. 

I don’t know if you keep in touch with their new family, or if you’ve been able to look at another baby photo the same, but I always think about you.

Although we met years ago at a family member’s home, I’ve always remembered what a caring and hilarious person you are. I hope one day your little ones know how awesome you are and that you did the best for them. 

I may not know what goes through your mind when you see photos of my kids growing up, but I want you to know that as long as your kids are happy, healthy and loved, then you did the right thing.

Wishing you the best,
Tima
