The one who gave birth to me.
And the one who IS my Mom.
After both of my brothers were born, my Mom couldn’t get pregnant again. They sought whatever medical treatment that was available back in the ‘60s, but Drs could not figure out why the plumbing wasn’t working. Nowadays, I guess it’s called, secondary infertility.
So, they decided to adopt.
They turned in their papers to the Relief Society (now Family Services) and were told it could be 1-2 years.
