yvette.jpgHave you ever wondered why women choose a single adoptive mother to parent their baby? Check out one woman's story, "Why I Placed My Baby With a Single Mother." She says that "I ended up choosing a single woman. I learned from my mom that a woman can be successful and have a family without a man around. The adoptive mom I chose...wasn’t able to have a child biologically. I knew she was strong when she told me about how she fought her way to success. She told me that she wanted to teach that strength to the child that she’d adopt. Aisha was the type of woman I wanted to be in 5 or 10 years! She’s a role model to me and I just knew that she’d be the perfect mom for my child!" Today, we're sharing about a hopeful adoptive mom from Maryland, Yvette!
