It's FINALLY finished!!

In March of 2008, I was asked by my social worker at LDS Family Services if I would like to be apart of the new website for LDS Family Services. Of course I said yes! What a wonderful opportunity for me to be an advocate for adoption and birth mothers! So, last March, I was flown up to Salt Lake for one crazy and fun day of interviewing, picture taking and meeting other birth moms. I was dead tired the whole day because I had left for the airport at 3 in the morning and I couldn't sleep the night before. So, besides from being extremely tired, it was such a great experience.

The new website was suppose to be up in September, but as we know, nothing ever goes as planned. So, as of today, one year and 3 months after filming, it's up!! Just go to www.itsaboutlove.org and click on the "Real Life Stories" section. I feel so blessed to be apart of something so great.

Go check me out!!

Sierra, you are SO awesome! I am so empressed how brave you are and how open you are. Your video was the best and you should feel good knowing you'll help a lot of girls with your story. I think what you said about being a true mother is so right! A true mother would do whatever it took, sacrafice whatever was necessary to make sure her child had the best. Birthmothers do the most selfless thing! It's all about love :)

You did awesome Sierra. You spoke straight from your heart and I think that and your selflessness is what touches people the most. I'm sure this site will be life-saving for many women!!
