The reason I chose adoption was that I wanted my child to have the very best life — financially, physically and mentally — and at the time I was not able to provide that.
I have two small children at home, and I don't really have much support from my family or their father. I am basically on my own, and this has made it hard on me. I sometimes do not have enough money for myself or my children. I have been struggling to make ends meet for the past five years, and another child would make it extremely hard. I thought I could make someone else happy by giving them a life that deserves to live.
I chose Pedro and Michelle because my heart felt that they would make great parents and, when I met them, they were exactly what I was praying for. God does answer prayers. Pedro and Michelle were very supportive in my labor and never left my sight. They were very understanding and caring, and I enjoyed every minute they shared with me in the hospital. They loved the baby as soon as she was born as if she were their own. I saw the happiness in their eyes, and that is when I knew I had made the right choice.
My adoption specialist was wonderful, and I am blessed to have known her. I am very happy with my decision, and I can go on with my life knowing my child will be happy and loved, and I will be looking forward to many pictures.
