So I Was Thinking About AdoptionAn excerpt from So I Was Thinking About Adoption…

I got pregnant when I was only 15… I was terrified to tell my mom, but then the day came when I couldn’t zip up my pants any more and she found out! Instead of going to school, she drove me to the doctor, with tears in our eyes. Turns out, I was already 5 months pregnant; guess that made sense, the baby was already kicking me all the time.

The thought of being a mother was a far-away idea. As my belly got bigger and my due date came closer, reality started to sink in. I didn’t have baby things or the money to buy them. I didn’t have a job, heck I hadn’t even finished high school. I think that is when I really started to consider my choices…so, I was thinking about adoption…


Let’s be honest, women don’t plan on choosing adoption for their children. You aren’t reading this book because you want to be a “birth mother.” You need help and want information. You need to learn more about the choices you have with adoption.

Right answers…Right reasons

Your head may be spinning from your family and friends telling you what they think you should do. Parents tell you one thing. Friends tell you something else. Once you have the facts, you’ll feel much more in control, and ready to make the right choices for the right reasons.
