Sherrie Eldridge Speaking

Sherrie speaks across

B1mdpp9AHXS._SY600

Because our birth mothers made a choice for us that dramatically changed the course of our lives and over which we had no control, many of us have a foundational belief (often unconscious) that we don't have the right to choose our own course in life. We feel instead that we are at the mercy of others.

I believe one of the most sacrificial acts of love adoptive parents can do is to give up their preconceptions and agendas about what their child's views should be and be open to hear the conflicting emotions and thoughts their child often experiences.
