Jah's Adoption Story
Unfortunately, I was raped by someone I did not know. It was what started my adoption story. It was the scariest thing I have ever experienced in my life besides a positive pregnancy test and C-section.
I was so torn because the more pregnant I became, the more I wondered if I should keep the baby. However, the thought of how I got pregnant made me sad. After much prayer, I decided that adoption didn’t mean giving up or giving my baby up. Adoption could give hope to both my baby and me.
After finding American Adoptions, I began to look for a family for my child. My mom helped me, but she wanted it to be my decision. As soon as I saw the adoptive parents, I knew they were the ones. Talking to them before the baby arrived helped me establish a relationship with them that gave me even more peace as I got closer to my due date.
I gained a new perspective on adoption, and by choosing two dads for my child, in my heart I would know that I will always be his mother. I made the best decision for him and me (in that order). I knew I needed to heal from what happened to me and that he didn’t deserve to miss a beat. It was the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. However, staying in touch with the adoptive parents and seeing my son healthy and happy reminds me that adoption wasn’t the only choice, it was the best choice.
