I think I really blossomed as a person while in that relationship because I no longer felt invisible and I felt like I truly mattered to someone outside of my family.

I was the child who was devastated on the last day of kindergarten because I couldn’t bear the thought of losing my kindergarten teacher.That was the year I started dating my first boyfriend.I always felt awkward and unattractive, so for someone to see me as beautiful was a wonderful feeling.It was so amazing being able to hold him in my arms and finally look into the face of someone who looked just like me.At that moment, I remember silently making a promise to myself and to that little guy that I would be everything for him that my birth mom couldn’t be for me.
