My Birth Parents
At the end of my collab with Manadlicous Cousins we are introduced to Nicole and Robert, Molly's birth parents. This is Molly's reaction to meeting her birth parents.
Things can change in an instant. Yesterday I met my birth parents for the first time ever. All this time I thought they were dead. I was shocked to find out they were still alive. I never thought I would see them ever again.. that I didn't even have a birth family. No relatives to speak of.
After my birth parents left the house Annie came in my room to talk to me.
"Hey kiddo, Mom told me those folks that just left were your birth parents."
I nodded. Tears were still flowing down my face.
Annie pulled me into her arms and rubbed my back.
"Molly, I understand you're upset about this and that it's a complete shock to you but do you think you could at least give them a chance? Who knows maybe we have more cousins we don't know about."
I looked up at my sister.
"If they really loved me why would they pretend they were dead and abandon me like that?"
"Imagine if they didn't, then you wouldn't be here living with us."
"True. I love you guys so much and don't know what I would do without you."
At that moment my mom came into my room and sat down on my bed next to Annie.
"We love you too princess." My mom whispered.
I moved over from Annie's lap to my mom's lap. My mom kissed the top of my head and rubbed my back.
"Sweetie pie, I know this is a lot for you to deal with and it may not have been the best idea to bring them into the picture at this point but they really wanted to explain the circumstances as to why they had to put you up for adoption."
I nodded. "I understand the circumstances. I just don't get why they pretended they were dead."
My mom continued to rub my back and Annie's hand joined hers.
"That may not have been the smartest move on their part but do you think you could forgive them for that and learn to love them like you love us?"
I shrugged. "I don't know…. I sure hope so."
" Would you like it if we invited them back over another day so maybe you can get to know them better?" my mother asked.
I nodded. "Let's wait a few weeks though."
My mom nodded.
"Sounds fair enough. I love you baby girl."
"I love you too Mama."
Annie and my mom left my room and I started my math homework.
