The Unselfish Choice

What is an unselfish choice?

C. S. Lewis states in a poignant quote that “Love is unselfishly choosing for another’s highest good.”

If you are a birth mother and have ever placed your child for adoption, you know what it is like to have a piece of your soul fractured. You love your child. Your heart is bursting with it. The unselfish decision you made to place your child for adoption is one of the strongest acts of love in the history of the world.

Birth mothers, we honor you, we love you, and we support you. You are amazing.

Caroline is currently working for Elevati/ as an intern--she loves it! She is a poor college student who is studying English and hopes to go on to wear the master's cap someday. You can find Caroline gallivanting around the European countryside or hoofing it in the mountains. Chocolate in any form instantly wins her friendship, and she is not afraid to geek out over the Lord of the Rings or Star Wars films.
