US winner of the “Something Beautiful” competition…. Birth mom meets daughter….

by Rod Smith

My beautiful story begins with an email two days after the 23rd birthday of a very special girl. You see, this girl is the daughter I gave up for adoption at birth. It was the most heartbreaking, gut-wrenching, mind-numbing thing I’ve ever had to do in my young life.

We found each other through an adoption website and quickly started communicating. I was shocked, excited and nervous all at the same time when we began exchanging emails. Will she accept me, judge me, be angry with me?

We made plans to reunite with family in August, it was a beautiful reunion. When our eyes met for the first time, the tears freely fell and we locked in an embrace that was so warm, beautiful and inviting I didn’t want to let go.

We spent hours looking at pictures of her life with this wonderful family that openly welcomed her as their own and raised her to be a beautiful, carefree, loving, responsible young woman.

She has welcomed her new family with open arms. We have so much more to discover about each other and my heart swells at the thought of her in my life.

My family is now complete.
