My reason for wanting a mama bird shirt is because the memory behind this book is close to my heart. My mom read it to me when I was little. It was no secret that I was adopted. My mom was always open with me about it and never sugar coated anything. But kept the conversations age appropriate.
I have a weird obsession with birds. I just think they are so cute! When she would read it to me I liked to look at the pictures of the birds. We would talk about the story and meaning but it didn’t really sink in until I was about ten. I saw the book one day and thought bird and adoption hmmm two very good things. But as I read it I began to cry. It turned out the cute birdies didn’t get to stay together. They had to say goodbye. The single mama bird couldn’t take care of the baby bird anymore and had to give him up for adoption.
“Our birth moms share something unique even with different circumstances. They lost someone that day too.”
Reasons vary between different birth moms, but there is something that hasn’t ached in me until adulthood. I was too busy disagreeing with my birth mom’s reason that I didn’t consider of her feelings. She was young, and hurting and may not know the Lord.
Our birth moms share something unique even with different circumstances. They lost someone that day too.
On our adoption day if we do adopt I hope to be wearing my mama bird shirt. Because this book is close to my heart.
