After I got over the shock of an unplanned pregnancy, I decided right away abortion was not an option and I was going to place this child for adoption.
Although, it was never that simple; being pregnant was a difficult transition, I had to change my lifestyle and start the process of finding a family. It was a little overwhelming but at the same time I knew I could do this.
I chose New Life Adoptions as an adoption agency. They already had families ready for me and helped mediate our conversations. I really appreciated the fact that New Life tried to get to know me and matched adoptive families to me based on my personality and adoption preferences.
New Life Adoptions provided me with waiting family profiles which included family stories and photos. When I saw Kevin & Alisa and read about the life they lived, and seeing their first son was adopted too, I knew right off the bat this was the family I wanted to have for my child.
I wasn’t giving a baby to strangers. They became an extension of my family.”
Seeing Avery grow up in their family has been amazing. She has a mom, a dad, and a brother, she plays sports, and has everything she needs. If I had decided to parent, she wouldn’t have that freedom to do what she would like to. She wouldn’t have parents who are together, and she would have to go back and forth between two families. This is where she belongs.
