I am and always will be Pro-Choice when it comes to women’s reproductive rights.
I was 19 when I was faced with an unexpected pregnancy. Because of my messed up family life, I went to get an abortion.
I decided last minute to not do it.
This is my open adoption story.
It is my hope that sharing this story will help shed some light on adoption not only as an option for an unplanned pregnancy but to help people understand some of the choices birth mothers make when faced with this decision.
My story (the short version) can be read on elephant journal:
My Adoption Story: A Birth Mother’s Decision
The full, unedited story will be in my book.
Stay tuned for more information, as the first draft editing process continues.
