A Birth Mom’s Story

I was on YouTube a while back and found the video (shown below) by “Cari,” who shares with unflinching courage the story of how she made an adoption plan for her daughter. In another video, she gives us a bit more background of herself — an account of abuse and neglect that is as painful to read as it must have been to make.

Although she is still clearly finding her way out of the darkness of the past, I couldn’t help but admire her desire to find a more hope-filled future for her child. Have a look … you’ll never forget it.
