“I made this video so that you know how much I love you. I wanted to tell you why I made the decision to place you with your family” This incredibly moving video has gone viral in the past couple days and after watching it you’ll realize why it’s been viewed over 2 million times already. Hannah Mongie gave birth to Taggart in March 2016 and got to spend 2 days with him before Taggart went to his adopted family. During the final hours of those 2 days, Hannah filmed this video and recently uploaded it to Facebook.
“He will never have to think that I ‘gave him up’ or that I did not love him. He will always be able to know that I loved him more than anyone else in the world.”
“I hope anyone who watches this will be able to gain a new perspective on what the Birth Mom goes through, when she places her child for adoption. It is the FURTHEST thing from a heartless act. It shows the definition of love. To love someone this much, is to give away your happiness for them. A lot of people have asked about possibly seeing him again in the future… This is an OPEN adoption. I get to see him all the time, thanks to his wonderful Mommy.”
Hannah gets to see Taggert quite often actually!
Taggy appreciation post: My beautiful Taggart Kaden, I love you. I love you more than I have ever loved anything in my life. You have given me a love to fight for and it has saved me in more ways than one. I fall harder for you each time I see you and sometimes I don’t even think that’s possible. I am so grateful that God has blessed me by letting me be in your life. You are my everything. Thank you for existing. #birthmom #openadoption #adoptionislove
One year ago today was the best, most incredible and most tiring day of my existence. I gave birth to the love of my life. The most beautiful baby boy in the whole entire world. He is my heart and my soul. This baby boy has saved me in ways I could never explain. He is the reason I love God and the reason I have so much love for Jesus and for the Atonement. I will never be able to express to him how grateful I am that he became apart of my life. I don't know what I would do without him. I am not me without him here on this earth. He has given me purpose. From the moment I heard his cry, tears flowed from my eyes. They were tears of a new kind of love that I had never experienced before. The all consuming love that a mother has for her child. If I could go back and live these three days of agony all over again, I would do it in a heartbeat. Happiest first birthday to the love of my love, my sweet Taggart Kaden Marsh. You will always be my first true love. 💙
