As the mother of two adoptive children, I really appreciated the article. I've seen their side of confusion even though I knew they loved me. Well written.
Wonderful story! Isn't God's timing amazing? I'm adopted too and got to meet my birth mother after my precious mom passed away. God is the Master Weaver in the tapestry of our lives. Great job.
The love your adopted parents gave you enabled you to transfer this love to your real mother even though you were given up as a baby. Throughout the Bible love is the essential factor. God is love and the greatest of all the virtues is love and God worked it out that you were able to share this love with your mother and so she came to accept Jesus. Isn't God wonderful.
This is a wonderful story. It pulled at my heartstrings.

A minor editing note: when you deciding between sit and set, set requires an object ex. I set the phone on the table, In your story the parents sit or sat up all night.

You did an excellent job of describing the feelings and fears that an adopted person might have. I also enjoyed the grace the MC had when she realized her birth mother was not doing well. You showed how we all should treat one another with respect.
A very touching story. I loved the way you began it and then went back in time.
