Elley was adopted at 3-weeks-old. Then, at a young age she placed her own baby for adoption.
“I will never forget having to leave that hospital without my son. That tiny, helpless baby…and I was walking away. Of course, I was also extremely confident in my choice of adoptive parents. It was just before Christmas and I felt as though I were giving them the best Christmas present ever.”
Almost seventeen years later, she’s about to meet her son:
“My son, whose name Eric, will be 17 in a few weeks and wants to go ahead and meet me!!!! So the caseworker was asking if I would be open to this and I almost fell out of my chair!!!! Talk about a flood of emotions!!! Would I be open to that??? OF COURSE!!!! I thought I would have to wait but now I’m going to meet my son. That tiny baby that I walked away from…who is not so tiny anymore.”
