When I saw your prompt and the word "unselfish" I immediately thought of my daughter's birthmom, and previous high school student of mine. The unselfish act of choosing adoption truly saved all 3 of us, each in a different way. Shala (birthmom) was at a rough point in her life and knew she could not take care of a baby so she made the most loving decision to give that baby a better life. My heart was aching for a child after dealing with infertility for nearly 10 years and this solution became the best fit for all. Shala has always remained in contact over the years and because of her unselfish act of love, all 3 of us are in a better place today. I am submitting this tribute page to her for this challenge. =)


Journaling says:
I have the greatest respect for Shala, your birthmom. She faced a tough decision in her life upon finding out she was pregnant with you. She made the most loving choice by recognizing that she wanted the best life for you and knew she couldn't provide it. It was an enormous emotional sacrifice to give you up for adoption, but she hand picked your forever family. I will always be grateful as it allowed me to be your Mom and changed my life forever. She has been a part of your life from the beginning and will always have a place in my heart. I see that same unselfish love in you, Kaitlyn!

I remember reading your story a few years ago (on your blog?)... I love how everything worked out for all of you. I think you created a really beautiful layout here. Thanks so much for playing in this bonus challenge!

*tears* I am also adopted and the struggle you went through for 10 years is the same as my adoptive parents. I do not know my birth mother, but I thank God for the difficult decision she made and that He bless her with a comfort that she did the right thing! This LO is stunning, too, by the way! I have this kit on my wish list!

This is fabulous in so many ways. Love your journaling and elements. Giving up a child is the most unselfish act and I truly admire the courage Shala has shown. Blessings to all of you.
