Miranda 4 Years Later
As we all know, adoption impacts people forever. The journey isn't over after the decision has been made. That's why we love to stay connected with those who have shared their stories with BraveLove over the years, like Miranda.
Brina | A Birth Mother From Alaska
I chose adoption because I knew that my son needed more than I could give him. I wanted him to have the best life he could, and I knew that I could not provide that for him. Most of all, I wanted him to have a complete family that was ready to raise a child.
Cathy | A Birth Mom from Texas
I was not familiar with adoption. I didn't know of anyone who had been through this process.
Miranda | A Birth Mom from Texas
I thought adoption was a little scary because I couldn’t plan for how I would feel after I gave birth. I knew I was doing the right thing but I was terrified I would change my mind at the last minute and have nothing for a baby at home.
Ana Almost 4 Years Later
Ana placed her son for adoption 3 and a half years ago. She shared her story with BraveLove about two years ago. So we're catching up and learning what her life looks like these days.
Laura | A Birth Mom from Louisiana
Before my adoption, I didn’t really have any thoughts or opinions on adoption. At least none that I felt particularly strongly about, that I can remember. I knew it was something people did for various reasons, but it had never affected me directly so I had never put too much thought into it. I do remember that my sisters used to tease me that I was adopted and that never made me feel good. It was not something that I wanted to be true.

"It is messy and beautiful. I can't quite describe how rewarding and how challenging it can be, but it is both. And I would not change it for anything!"

A Father's Day Interview with Zach
It's hard knowing that my daughter is calling somebody else "daddy" but, ultimately, it's all part of the process, and in my opinion, more than anything, it teaches us, as fathers, how to be more resilient.
