We Are Motherhood

Like many other inspirational adoption quotes that are popular, this one speaks to me. This one has a profound meaning that open adoption symbolizes. One mother raises him, one mother gave him life. Together, these two mothers provide him with all he needs.  Love, answers and family. They may not be co-parenting or doing every step together, but together they make one whole motherhood experience.

Together we are Motherhood

“He is mine in a way that he will never be hers, yet he is hers in a way that he will never be mine, and so together we are motherhood.”
