18 years ago my life changed today. My handsome birth son was born. I am proud of the man he is becoming. I am proud to call him my birth son and my friend. Lucas taught me about unconditional love. Two families came together to celebrate his life and we became one amazing extended family. Happy 18th Birthday! I love you! Today I celebrate your amazing life.
I dreaded his 18th birthday for a long time. My birth son is an adult. Now our relationship is his choice. I spent his birthday feeling proud. I wouldn't change anything. I'm thankful for our open adoption.
