Successful Families

I have a wonderful life

Becky W., a young adult in Mosinee. Wisconsin who was adopted

I was adopted when I was 3 months old and it was the best thing that ever happened to me. My birth mother didn’t like the way that I was born and the fact that she was 14 years old when she had me.

I’m now 21 years old and I really wanted to meet my birth mother and father. She doesn’t want anything to do with me, which breaks my heart, and I discovered my birth father killed himself 2 years after I was born.

I am just as normal as anyone else except the fact that I have a rare blood disorder, other than that I have a wonderful life and the greatest family on earth. I wouldn’t trade my life for the world!!!
