“When my daughter was born, I told her how much I loved her and how wonderful her life would be with two people that loved her as much as I did. Then, I knew I had done the right thing. The adoptive parents came in and carried her home as we had planned and although I cried for the next three days, I never had a doubt that adoption wasn’t the best for her and us. I have learned a lot since my adoption and I know the choice I made was one I thought out and planned. I have no regrets.”

-Wendy, a birth mother who made an adoption plan at 23


“My boy ‘s going to be surrounded by so much love and affection by his adoptive parents and for that, I’m incredibly blessed to have that peace that he’ll be taken care of.”

“I knew that my options were not going to be easy. I had to provide my baby with the life he needed, but I couldn’t do that unless mine was on track. Every time I see him with his adoptive parents, I know that I made the right decision. I know he has what he deserves. I am happy that they embrace me like family too!”



“When someone mentioned adoption I thought ‘I could never give my baby away!’ But I learned about open adoption. It was a way to give my baby a life, and a way I could be a good mom by choosing adoptive parents to raise her. I knew I wasn’t yet able to be the kind of mom I wanted for my daughter. Adoption would be hard, but so would raising a baby with no job or money, no dad to help, no place of my own…I didn’t want my child to miss out, and I wanted to do right by her.

Today my daughter knows who I am and why I chose adoption. We have a special connection and I love her parents…Knowing I helped to give her a good future means the world to me.”



“I couldn’t imagine being a single parent of two. I couldn’t go through with an abortion. I decided on adoption…the adoptive family I chose are wonderful people. I really felt for them in their struggle to have a baby. I decided that they were the ones who deserved to raise my child…

When it came time for the birth they stayed until I left the hospital. It was a wonderful time! It made me happy to see the joy in their lives…We still keep in touch and I always know how my baby is doing, as well as knowing he’s in good hands. Now I can go on and make a better life for myself and my oldest. It was a tough choice, but I know I did the right thing for me and my children.”



“I knew that my daughter would be loved and cared for in every way. I love my daughter with all my heart, and because of that love I was able to give her everything I had always wanted for her. I know that open adoption was the very best plan for my daughter, Alexandra.

I am so very excited for the life she will be able to lead due to open adoption. Each and every day I think of my daughter and know that she is loved, safe, and thriving in her family. I can see the photos and letters that her adoptive parents regularly send me that she is growing into a lovely young girl. The relationship that my daughter’s adoptive parents and I share is one I know will last a lifetime.”



“Making an adoption plan for my son is easily the best decision I have ever made. I sacrificed so much for this little guy, like my senior year, my body, my relationship, my family, the list could go on.

Never in my life, though, will I regret choosing to endure the nine months to give my baby boy to a loving couple who cannot have children of their own. Through the adoption process, I have been so incredibly blessed and I feel overjoyed knowing I gave life to a family who could not make it themselves. We all have something to be thankful for…for me, it’s a new family.”

-Chloe, a Lifetime birth mother


“I looked through tons of profiles while I was pregnant trying to find the family who could raise my baby. One couple always stood out because the woman reminded me of my mother. About a week before I had the baby, I started talking to these wonderful people. They came to the hospital the morning after I had my baby and I knew that they were the right ones. They keep me posted and send me lots of pictures. I’m truly grateful to have found them. It was the hardest thing I have ever done, next to actually giving birth. He will always be my birth son. These people and their families have taken in this child and given him the love, care and support a child needs to grow. I cannot express enough how truly grateful I am. I never gave up my child; I’ve gained a second family.”

-a birth mom living in Nevada


“The reason I decided on adoption for my son was wanting more for him. Love was the most important of the reasons. I just wanted to make sure that he would be LOVED. I knew that I could have given him all the love he needed, but that was probably all I could have given him. The parents he is with have much more and that has allowed me peace in my decision.”
