Becoming a Birthmother


My name is Rachel and I am from Tucson, Arizona. Yesterday I found out I was pregnant and due in one month. Today I came to the realization that I am becoming a birth mother.

I am 18 years old and have two children already. One is in the care of my mother and I work very hard to support my one year old. This is all a shock to me but I want to make the best of my situation. After speaking with someone at Arizona Adoption Help I feel so much better knowing that I have a plan. They are going to help me get through this pregnancy and find the perfect family for my child. I know there is more to get through and process, but today I am hopeful that this can turn into a beautiful story.

My child will have all the love in the world and everything I could not give to him myself. Another family will experience the joy I feel at being a parent to my other two children. This is an opportunity for everyone to experience a full and happy life. Thank you for being somewhere I could turn to in this moment. There is no way I can express the peace I am beginning to feel.
