My Eyes Wide Open
Three years ago I was a lost and scared girl who
felt that her future was ruined. I was 20, pregnant,
alone and had no one I felt I could turn to,
basically, to be quite frank, I was screwed. Then
one day I met a fabulous woman named Kris, my
first contact with the Denver Adoption Agency and
the woman who put me in touch with Geri Glazer,
the woman who changed my life, gave me a second
chance and basically became a second mother to
I am not one to open up to people at all, but there
was something about Geri that let me open up and
put my trust and my baby’s future in her hands. At
the time all I could feel was shame, anger and regret… Geri showed me that I needed to
open my eyes, Nate is the best thing that ever happened to me and the most beautiful
accomplishment of my life.
I only wish now I wouldn’t have wasted all that time feeling that regret and embracing
the beauty of this Denver Open Adoption. The day Nathan William was born, I will
admit, I was again a broken woman, I have never cried more in my life or felt the heart
ache of having to sign the papers to officially give him to the
wonderful family I chose, it still brings tears to my eyes when I
remember those moments. The only thing that kept me strong
through that process was Geri Glazer, her words in my head,
her love in my heart, she showed me no judgment, but instead
gave me validation for the beautiful act I was performing. She
showed me I do have a future, I CAN finish school, I can have
a life, AND I CAN LOVE MYSELF.
Geri helped me through what started out as a horrible time in
my life, Pregnant in Denver… But Geri Glazer saved my life. I
can’t imagine never knowing her now. She is the reason I am
graduating from college this year and starting my adult life, she
is the reason I am able to do anything today, and I will NEVER
be able to repay her. But I will love her until the day I die, and I will never forget who
helped me get where I am today. I love you Geri. Emily
