Today on the podcast we have a birth mother story from California. Angela Rushing shares her story of how she was brought up in a traumatic household with an alcoholic father and passive aggressive mother, and how this situation ultimately led her to feel unwanted and unnurtured. Before she knew it, she had undergone 2 abortions, and when she found herself pregnant once more, she knew she couldn’t do it again. This is where she began to look into private adoptions and discovered the couple who would become the adoptive parents of her child. Angela gets very honest about the whole process and how it wasn’t until after she gave birth that the depression and suicidal thoughts triggered her to look into her past to be able to deal with her feelings and come to terms with her life. We also dig into her current life and her relationship with her daughter and how that reconnection has helped her become the woman she is today.
