What were your goals after placement? Have they changed? If so, what are they now?
While I was pregnant, my goals were to just go 100% back to my normal life. Be a college student again, have everything just be so great and I was going to be this great birthmom and people were going to love me for that. Now I kind of mellowed out a little bit. My goals are just to do the best that I can and to be the kind of person that she would be proud of to say “That’s my birth mom and I’m proud of her and I love her.” That’s really all I want out of life. I don’t really care about anything else. I’m still going to school, still working, and that’s awesome but I just want to be the kind of person that she would be proud of.
