ExcerptCarefully refolding the letter, I place it gently on my nightstand. The stack of adoption paperwork is next. I skim the words, not completely sure of the lingo. My dad and Michelle’s names pop out a few times, along with the name Sarah Collins. She was sixteen when she had me. I stare at the mirror hanging on the wall opposite of my bed. She was my age. Looking down at my stomach, my hand pressing firmly into my skin, I think about how different my life would be if I had a baby right now. The stares and murmurs as I walk through school. No prom, no dating, no driving. I can’t even imagine. I finger through the rest of the paperwork before coming across another envelope with my name on it. The handwriting is loopy and unrecognizable. Opening up this one, I see that it’s from Sarah to me. My little Roly Poly, Where do I even begin? I fell in love with you the moment that test said positive. I don’t know how old you’ll be when you read this. I bet you’re a beautiful girl. I always pictured you to have chestnut hair with green eyes, just like my mom’s. You’ll probably be a mess as you grow older, getting into trouble left and right. But you’ll have the heart of an angel, caring and loving. I hate that I’m going to miss all of this. Mia, please know that I didn’t want this. Unfortunately, we don’t always get what we want. Mr. Dylan seems to be a saint of a man. I could tell from the moment I met him that he was going to take good care of you. If you ever want to get up with me, please, don’t hesitate. Mr. Dylan and I have agreed to stay in touch. So, as I sit here and stare at you, lying in the nursery with all the other babies, my heart breaks. I love you so much and I will pray every day that you are happy and well. The letter shakes in my hands. Without hesitation, I grab my phone, dialing the cell phone number left on a contact sheet in the back. I don’t want to talk myself out of it. I just want to hear her voice. “Hello?” My tongue is suddenly made of sandpaper. I swallow some spit, hoping to find a voice. “Hello?” The voice sounds slightly irritated. “Sarah?” My words come out like a choke, and I cough to clear my voice. “Sarah Collins?” Now she’s silent and I could hear her shift on the other end. “Yes?” I clear my throat once more. “Sarah, my name is Mia. I’m...I’m your daughter.”
