So I have two moms. The two women in the pictures are sisters.
The mom on the left is my biological and the one on the right is my adoptive mother.
I feel very blessed for these two women in my life. I grew up not knowing I was adopted. It was like the Truman Show. Everyone in my life knew I was adopted except for me.
Regardless of the circumstance, I must admit I am very fortunate to have two solid moms. Lillian, the one on the right raised me with a strict hand and an open heart haha. She showed me compassion, kindness, and a lot of heart with the people around her and with me. No matter what hell I put her through in my teen years, she always had unconditional love. We may not connect in ways a natural mother and daughter do, but to have this mother as a guide in life, I couldn’t ask for anything more. I hope to be a woman/wife like her one day. I woman with exceptional compassion and woman of integrity. I look up to her, not just as a mother, but as a woman.
As for my biological mother, all these years, after the truth came out, I heard her truth. Even though they moved forward with three amazing kids, the love she expressed to me as being her first born and her baby, moved mountains within me. The love my biological parents showed me that no matter how far or how long, love knows nothing but simply love. She said that they have thought of me everyday and have been proud of the woman I have become. She instilled a foundation of love that I believe in to this day, the love that knows no boundaries or limits. A love that is selfless and filled with so much understanding.
Maybe I’m a two person job haha. I was given a mother to guide and instill the things that we need to survive and to thrive in life in a positive way. Then my biological mom came in the picture later to remind me to trust my heart and showed what love is and what it can acheive.
I cannot change my circumstance and I think now I wouldn’t. I feel very blessed to have two women in my life who have done nothing but the best for me.
I am thankful to have a piece of both of you within me and I hope one day to pass on these strengths to my children one day.
