Meet Jamie, a birth mom! Discover what led Jamie to the decision to place her son Truman for adoption.
Most people generally know me as a hard working single mother with one son. Most people don't know I have two. I was being a parent in making the decision I wasn't able to care for my youngest the way I do for my oldest. I was so torn when I found out I was pregnant; I was already 6 months along. I knew I would not be able to provide for my unborn like I am able to for my youngest and that's why I chose adoption.
When the agency gave me books of families to look I was immediately drawn to them. When I saw Heidi's pictures I knew right away her and Andy were perfect. I said, “this is it” right away. They advised me to take a few days, however I looked at the book about a thousand times and my son kept playing with their book. There was no doubt in my mind and my heart, they were it.
