"There were a lot of people who didn't understand how I could have one and place another."

"I've got two healthy boys. They love each other; neither one of them will have to wonder if they were loved."

Kandice was already parenting her 9-month-old son when she found out she was pregnant again.  As a single parent, there were challenges that made parenting a second child incredibly difficult. 

"I came across something that said open adoption.  Once I started reading about that I was like okay that sounds like something that I think that I can do and still be a part of my son's life."

Fast forward to today — there is still hardship around this decision, but neither one of her boys will have to wonder if they were loved.

This is Kandice’s story and why she chose adoption.
