The Best Decision for Her - Christine's Story

My name is Christine and I am 29 years old. I had a cryptic pregnancy and didn’t know I was pregnant till I was 30 weeks

I chose adoption because I was struggling a lot a lot at the time working a dead end job and was still trying to figure out life.

I knew I couldn’t give her the life she deserved at the time. I didn’t want her growing up in a broken family. So, I brought up adoption to my stepmom when I found out and she told me she knew some family friends that was looking to adopt a child. I thought long and hard and realized it was for the best.

I have an open adoption and I go fly and visit them every year and I get pictures and get to video chat with me.

Best choice I could have made for her. I wouldn’t be who I am today without her.

She will be 7 years old next month. I feel blessed to have them in my life. Her family is like my second family.
