Birth Mom Photo a Day 24: Closure

Day 24: {Closure}
Closure to me implies the desire to find an end or close a door and move on. I don't believe that closure, in the true sense of the word, is something any birth mother can hope to find in her adoption experience. Peace, calm and reassurance, yes, but true closure is nearly impossible when there are such strong connections and powerful emotions involved in the placement process. I haven't met one birth mother yet that truly desires to move on and never look back.
My adoption experience has been developing and evolving since that day I placed her with her parents. I don't expect any of that to come to a close, but rather to continue to open up and grow over time.
