Many adopted families celebrate the airplane day or the day that they finally got to fly home with their new little one, but since I was only a car ride from home, we celebrate my Gotcha Day.
Now as an adult, having the ability to have the best parents I could have ever hoped for and to be able to have formed a relationship with each of my birth parents has been an amazing experience. I'm so thankful for the openness my parents have always shown with me about my adoption story and I'm thankful that they've always supported me in my search to find out more about my family history. Without their support, I truly couldn't have found the answers I'd been hoping for or built the relationships I'm lucky to have with my birth parents and their families. Adoption is such a blessing in my life and in the lives of so many. Dan and I have talked about adopting in our future, but no matter what I know that because I am adopted, that adoption will always be a part of our family.
