My name is Kara, and I chose adoption for my child. My child has two loving parents, a big brother, and everything she needs. I have the opportunity to see her occasionally, and her parents text me pictures and updates often. After the adoption, I finished school and even got the opportunity to go to college. If I had not chosen adoption for my child, I would never have met my soon-to-be husband. We met in class, got to know each other, and have been dating ever since.
When I found out that I was pregnant, I was terrified. As I considered my options, I decided to look into adoption. I’m sure glad that I did! I called Adoption Associates and was connected with a wonderful caseworker who gave me information, understanding, and support. After thinking about my options and wondering what my future would hold, I decided that adoption for my child was the best thing for her and for me. I called my caseworker and told her that I was ready to pick a family for my baby. After looking through several profiles, I found them. I found the perfect family for my daughter! When we met, we just hit it off. They were caring, compassionate people and were happy that I wanted to be involved in her life going forward.
I feel very confident in my choice of adoption for my child. Adoption is a loving choice that gave my baby a great life with loving parents. It gave me the chance I needed to get my life on the right path. And, I have this extended family now that cares about me and includes me in their life.
