My name is Ashelei, and I am the birthmom to Peyton. Kacy and I have an amazingly open adoption. I even had the opportunity to spend 4 amazing days with Peyton in his own home. It was amazing to watch him in his home, with his mom and dad. The best part was I didnt feel like I was missing out because I "placed" Peyton. I have always been apart of Peyton's life since the day we were released from the hospital. Kacy has done a very good job keeping me posted on Peytons milestones, whether it was his first step, his first smile, his well-child exams, or him not liking certain foods. I felt very blessed and comfortable with my decision and having the opportunity to spend 4 days with him made me realize how much Peyton is truly loved by all.
I hope that by putting our story out there, will show one woman out there who is considering adoption, that they are making the right choice.
Enough for tonight.
