This Mother’s Day, This Man Has Something Important To Say To His Birth Mother

“It’s 2017, I’m almost 30, I’m really happy that I’m here.I think when people get pregnant now and don’t want a baby, they don’t have the baby. Without wanting to get into the abortion debate, I’m really happy to exist. My parents – who are now called Mum and Dad – were told they could never be parents and now they are – so they’re really happy as well.”

This time of year, Ryan Jon’s thoughts turn to his birth mother. Her name was Julie, and she wrote him a note when he was born, explaining her decision to place him for adoption. He doesn’t want to intrude on her life . . . but he has a message he wants her to hear.
