“A Mother’s Peace of Mind”
Cindy Ruff knows what it’s like to be on both sides of adoption. As a child, she was given up by her young mother and placed into an adoptive family's loving home. At 18, Cindy herself became pregnant and made the tough choice to give up her first-born son. Heartbroken as she was, Cindy felt that she wanted to give him the same gift of a two-parent home as she had found. Though some called her selfish, she felt that wanting the best for him was the most unselfish thing she could have done.
