These some of the questions emailed to me...
Q: When you were pregnant with Cayden did you ever consider adoption?
A: Yes I did. I was only 16. I think I would have been crazy to not be scared out of my mind to have a baby.
Q: Why did you choose to parent?
A: Parenting was what I felt was right. I knew when I saw his face I knew I needed to be his mom.
Cayden and Jordan April 2007
Q: How old was Cayden when you allowed Katelyn to adopt him?
A: I signed the papers in February of 2010, just before my daughter was born. He turned 3 that April.
Q: Who was there when you signed the papers?
A: Just me and the notary.
Q: Would it have been easier to sign if you had family there with you?
A: Ya it would have but at the time my family wasn't exactly supportive of my decision.
Q: Is your family supportive of your decision now?
A: They are now but like I said they weren't at first.
Q: What do you think made them become supportive?
A: I think mainly time. But I also think them seeing me comes to terms with it played a part.
Q: Do you wish things were different in your adoption?
A: Not now but in the past. We weren't exactly nice when the process first started. I wish that was different. I also know that things happen for a reason.
Q: What is the number one thing you want Cayden to know about his adoption.
A: The main thing is that I love him and I did what I knew was right and best for him.
Q: What is the number one thing you want for Cayden?
A: To be happy and loved.
Q: Do you still consider yourself his mom?
A: No, I'm his birth mom now. I was his mom for as long as God needed me to be.
Jordan, Cayden, Me (July of 2010)
Q: What has been the hardest part about your adoption?
A: Letting go and moving on. I couldn't do that until I was ok with the adoption.
Q: How has adoption changed you as a mother?
A: I don't take anything with my daughter for granted. I also realized things I did wrong with Cayden and I'll never do those same things with my daughter.
Cayden and Jordan's daughter
Q: How will you explain Cayden's adoption to your children?
A: Honestly I have NO idea. I'd love some advice in that area.
So... if your question wasn't answer it's because Jordan or I didn't feel the need to answer it. Also if you have any other questions or comments for Jordan you're more than willing to leave a comment... I have said it a few times Jordan is and always will be a very special person to me. It doesn't matter what mistakes have been made in the past. I have had moments where I struggle with the past but then I remember that she is struggling with the present. My love for Jordan goes deep and always will. NOTHING will change that.
