39 years. For 39 years, I never knew what my life’s passion was. Of course, I love my children, they are my reason for waking up every morning, but there had to be more to me, then Jordan and Jacobs mom right? Then this past year, I became pregnant with Eva and I was known as the woman who chose adoption. I was labeled a birthmom. Again, I was proud to wear that title just as I wear my title as mom. But those two titles don’t define the whole person I am. Who is Beth? What is her purpose in life?
And then it hit me, like a bolt of lightening, maybe by chance or as I like to hope, God was showing me my purpose. I was meant to to help birthparents and the entire triad in the adoption world. Finally I found my passion and my calling. Something I am good at, and excel in. And finally I have this fire in my heart, the passion I was missing all these years.
As this is an adoption blog, you may be wondering what this has to do with the subject of adoption. Let me tell you… I am a faithful person and I believe everything DOES happen for a reason. And God brought me Eva to finally find my reason in this world. I hope that by continuing my education and staying the course, I can make all three of my children proud and help others the way that I have been helped during this past year.
