I chose adoption for my baby not because I didn’t want her but because I love her. I know that at this point in my life with two young children already, that I could not support another. The fathers of the two I have now do nothing to help out. I am still trying to establish my place in the world. I just knew this way my daughter would have the best life I could provide for her. The adoptive parents are the nicest people I have ever met. They visited and talked with me often. I was so relieved to meet them and know that they trusted me enough to know so much about them. I feel that she will be truly safe and happy with them.
For all those mothers and mothers to be that are thinking of adoption, don’t be afraid of it. It’s a very loving decision. It will be hard, but at least this way the baby will live and have the life they deserve to have. Please consider a home birth so that your time with your baby is personal and more meaningful for the two of you.
