Anna’s Story of Adoption

Posted by Lifetime Adoption on February 21, 2014

Here’s a story from a woman named Anna, who recently made an adoption plan with Lifetime Adoption.

“I knew I had to make a decision about my pregnancy, and soon. I was running out of time.

My mom mother said I should place the baby in a family with a mom and dad. My boyfriend said he’d pay to terminate the pregnancy. And, my best friend said I should keep the baby. My head was spinning, and I didn’t know what to do.

I decided to call a counselor. After a few hard, but caring talks, I was able to make a choice that was right for me and my situation. I wanted to move to another city until my baby was born, and then place him with the adoptive parents I’d selected. My boyfriend was relieved, and my best friend was upset for awhile, but got over it.

Talking with someone else let me escape from the pressure I was under. I was able to honestly consider my baby’s future, and mine too! When I met the family I’d selected, I felt they truly respected me. By doing what I thought was best, I could be proud of my decision. Ultimately, I did the most loving thing possible: I created a beautiful life for my child.”
