A - A1 is my .5 daughter. She was my first, and she lives with her parents; with whom I have an open adoption relationship with (see my blog on my adoption experiences).
Born in 2001, I was only 20 at the time. Now I realize that there are plenty of young girls who choose to parent at this age, but I was in no position to do so. The father wasn't around; we had been dating, but had broken up. I was not in a place to rear a child. Not in any way what-so-ever. So, I made the best choice for both of us (and Family1). I do hope that someday she will read my birth mother story, but I don't know if she will.
