‘You are loved’: A mother’s note of gratitude to her newly adopted teen



We found this amazing story of a mother’s love letter to her newly adopted son featured on The Today Show’s Today Parenting Team website recently. We’re especially excited about sharing it with you because Holly Romero, the mom who wrote these heart-felt words, is a part of our Creating a Family on-line Facebook community group.

The beautiful letter is a touching pledge of commitment, gratitude for her son’s place in the family, and an acknowledgement of the many facets wrapped up in older child adoption. Holly remembered this poem from her childhood and thought it was very meaningful for her new son and what they’ve been through as a family to get to this adoption finalization.

We loved you then.
We love you still.
We always have.
We always will.
