“My entire life is a love letter I’ve been writing to my birth mother and to my mom and dad. I try to live each day with intention, to be kind to others, to smile, to be open to new opportunities. I am very aware that my life was a gift given to me by these three people, and I do not intend to waste it.”
Dona Mason Women was adopted when she was just a newborn baby. It’s something she celebrates each day. In a Facebook post that recently went viral, Dona wrote about her experience of being adopted. She’s never met her birth mother, she admits, but she is grateful for the love and sacrifice that brought her the life that she has. It’s a sense of gratitude that drives her desire to be the best person she can be.
