One word to describe how you felt the moment you discovered you were pregnant?
Why did you choose adoption?
I chose adoption because I knew the life I wanted to give my child was different from what I could truly give her.
Who played the biggest role in your decision to place your child for adoption?
My parents were my biggest role models. Since they have been adoptive parents themselves with me and my four other siblings, I knew the positivity of adoption. I also know adoptive parents love their children just as much as biological parents would.
How did you perceive adoption before you placed? And after you placed?
Before placing for adoption I had already known a lot about adoption. Being adopted myself, it was almost just a natural understanding in my life. I didn’t know any different. I thought adoption was all happy. Now having placed I know adoption is every emotion rolled into one amazing decision.
