Hannah's Adoption Story
My senior year of high school I found myself in an abusive relationship. I left for college with the illusion of being in a loving and healthy relationship. After going back home for winter break, I returned to school and found myself pregnant. I was scared but grateful because this miracle of a baby made my boyfriend break up with me. I was all set to give up my scholarship, move back home (which meant going from Colorado to Minnesota) after the pregnancy announcement and have this little girl.
When I was home and about 28 weeks pregnant, reality started to hit. The only way I could protect this angel of a baby from her father was to give her to a family who could provide her with a safe home. Even though he showed no interest and hadn’t reached out in over five months, I still had to protect her.
My grandma had sent me information about American Adoptions and the link to their website early on in my pregnancy. I also was able to look at some families. I went through hundreds of families until I was sure I found the right one. My first family I liked actually adopted a day before I saw them online. However, the family I moved forward with could not have been more perfect and I knew one minute into their video that they were the ones for me. They already had an adopted son so it was the perfect family of four.
I had them at the hospital with me and we got to meet her an hour after she was born. They send me pictures all the time and I get to see her once a year. I wouldn’t change a thing because I know how happy she is and that she has the safe, loving home I wanted for her. We are both extremely blessed.
