I can't help saying, though: you are an amazing human being.
Sisoon, thank you for this. It's one of the nicest things I have ever read/heard. Made me cry. Of course, I've cried the majority of the last 2 days anyway. But still.

I am in tears. ((((big, big hugs))))
It is a special thing to grieve openly in the presence of people who love and accept you. Thanks for sharing such a intimate moment.

I've also thought giving a child up for adoption was the most selfless love a human could show another human.
I'm sure you did the right thing at the right time.
I admire your strength and courage.

Those who pray, I sure could use some that my daughter will soon decide she'd like to know me.
HFSSC, my thoughts and prayers are with you. Here is a photo of a banner at my church which has truly helped me with healing from a life-altering event almost 45 years ago.

You were brave enough to carry your daughter to term.
I was not. I don't even know the gender of the pregnancy I gave up at 9 weeks gestation.

You are an awesome human being. You put your child before yourself. Even when it broke your heart into a million pieces.
Hang in there sweetie. Be gentle with yourself.
If Happy Ever After did exist, I would still be holding you like this.

I've been invited to speak at a fund raiser for the crisis pregnancy center where I had my pg test
You didn't mention the topic that you're speaking about but I just wanted to say that I admire the courage and strength it will take to be a speaker at this event.

I totally understand. I had my daughter when I was 15 and my father took her away from me and put her up for adoption. I spent the next 18 years looking for her and finally met her.
At first, she was too young to want a relationship with me and that broke my heart. So I waited and as she got older she reached out to me more.
She is now 45 and we've become fairly close. She doesn't call me Mom, but I am Grandy to my two teenage granddaughters. I know that my daughter loves me and it's more than I ever dreamed of.
I never had another child and am so very grateful for what I have with her. I hope that as your daughter gets older, particularly when she has her own children and understands the sacrifice you made, that she will reach out to you.
I will hold you in my heart and I am here if you ever need to talk.
