A Birthmother’s Reflection: Brook

At 17, I felt desperate to be in a serious relationship. When I faced an unplanned pregnancy, I knew I needed to get out of the relationship with the father because I realized my unborn baby would need a more safe and stable environment. I considered all my options, and really felt that adoption was the best thing I could do for my baby. Miah now has everything that I couldn’t give her—a two parent home and financial stability—and I’ve had time to grow and mature. I’m married now and will soon be the kind of mom I always wanted to be.

The best advice that I can give another birth mom facing a teenage pregnancy is that adoption is a loving opportunity that you can give your child as you receive pictures and letters and watch them grow into a wonderful person. At the same time, you have the opportunity to get your life back on track.
