One word to describe how you felt the moment you discovered you were pregnant?
Why did you choose adoption?
The second I found out I was pregnant, I knew I couldn’t raise him or her the way I wanted to. The baby and I both deserved better.
What and who played the biggest role in your decision to place your child for adoption?
Finances and my mother. I knew I couldn’t provide everything a baby needs, much less day care. And I refused to accept handouts from my parents. I wanted to be able to support my child.
