Update: Past 2 years!

Well it has been a long time since I updated this blog! We are now in the year 2017, and my little Mason Scott will be 3 this summer. Also, I will be getting married in August!

First things first, Mason Scott can talk, walk, run, swim, and climb. He knows who I am, and it's beyond words to say the least. The last time I saw little man was back in December of 2016, it's been awhile since then but I still get updates and all. I've been busy with attending college to get my Marketing degree!

The coolest part about adoption today for me is being able to hear Mason talk fluently. It's crazy to think that it felt like just yesterday when he was an infant. Adoption is amazing, it's not perfect but it is amazing.

I graduated from High School a year ago, and wow that's crazy to look back on. They say when you graduate that everything changes, but to be honest nothing exciting happened except for the fact I didn't have to go to school the next day.

I became single back in July last year, and then dated another guy for awhile. Both relationships did not end well. To be blunt, one is now serving his mission as of this week in the Philippines and I am overly happy for you. The other I don't know where he went or what happened to him. Which was for the best for me because not a week later, the end of October 2016,  I met the guy I will be spending the rest of my life with.

Now I have a beautiful ring on my finger, I have had 3 of my siblings get married sine then. Another will be married in June too! Which means 8 of my siblings which includes me will be/are still married as of August 2017. Which means our parents still have 8 more weddings to be ready for in the future. Still a lot of weddings.

Mark, my Fiance is amazing. He is a very humble and honest man. He has indeed met Mason. And that was wonderful. With having an open adoption, the big thing with accepting someone to be my husband would to first of know that he loves me for who I am, and my birth son. I feel peace when I am with Mark, and that is something I have never been able to have in past relationships.

It's almost summertime and I am excited to go swimming and hiking! Idaho has been full of snow and rain nonstop for the past 5 months. But I do get the blessing of waking up to blue skies for a little while before they turn grey.

I am happy with where I am at in life right now. And that is a lot to be grateful for.

Why I Chose Open Adoption for My Baby: Written for

This guest post is by Makena, a birthmother. As a high school student and one of a handful of birth mothers in Idaho with an open adoption, explaining my situation to friends and acquaintances is complicated. How many high school girls know what a birth mother is? Not enough, to be honest. For many people, open adoption is a scary concept because it’s new and a different type of adoption than they’re used to. So why did I choose to place my son in an open adoption? The real question is how could I not have placed him? If I were parenting him right now, this is how it would be: I would go to school during the day and work in the evenings. Mason would be in daycare all day. We would be barely financially stable. Mason doesn’t sleep at night so I wouldn’t get any sleep either. I wouldn’t be able to give him nice toys, clothes, or be able to snuggle with him like children need, and he would have no father figure at home. Placing Mason in a financially stable home with a mother who would sp…

A Piece of Hope From Someone Who Had Lost It

Hope. It is sometimes a really hard thing to have. In life, we find ourselves in situations we can’t understand. Whether it be infertility, an unexpected pregnancy, relationship problems, health conditions, the death of loved ones, or any other life changing situation, we have all lost hope. We have all found ourselves in that place where we are so overwhelmed and can’t find the way out.
There are adoptive couples who struggle with being chosen to raise a child and complete their family. There are failed adoption placements. There are children who cannot find their birth parents. There are birth parents who are promised openness to see their birth child, and then never get to see that beautiful child again. There are families who are torn apart by illness or divorce. There are families who lose children, parents, and spouses. There are women who find themselves alone, scared, and pregnant. There are an endless amount of situations that are difficult and challenging. And this is where …
