"I met my dad and he is awesome!!!"

Sometimes life does not go exactly the way you think it should...lol! When I was younger I never would have dreamt my life would of taken the path that it did...but it is what it is! I've said it before and I'll say it again I don't regret any of my past and I really look forward to what the future has to hold. I also know that I love my son with all my heart and he has been the greatest blessing in my life. Cameron is 6 years old and had never met his dad...after a lot of pondering and prayer they finally met last night. Cameron was very excited and also very nervous! It was one of the most amazing things I've witnessed in a long time...I'd like to introduce Cameron's dad Jimmy!

Cameron lingered back by my car for a second or two and then sprinted, jumped up into his arms and gave him a huge hug! Then they ran off and played, laughed, and talked! Cameron woke up this morning telling me how awesome is dad is....

I have tears streaming down my face. You are the BEST mom ever. That must have been such a hard decision. I can't even imagine. What a selfless thing to do for your son. WOW!!

Mandy, that is great! I am SO glad that Cameron had such a wonderful, memorable experience. That really is wonderful that you let him have that opportunity. What a hard decision, but I think that picture of them together is so special. They both look very happy.

You may have opened Pandora's box. As a child of adoption, meeting my biological mother was traumatic after all the excitement wore off.

I can't believe that no one has commented about how alike they look. I think they definately look like each other.
