At the age of 26 I found myself with an unplanned pregnancy. The father of the baby was out of my life. I knew abortion was not right. I felt that if I was pregnant, it was my responsibility to care for this child. I knew, however, that this child was entitled to far more than I was able to provide. I was emotional about the decision, but whenever I spoke with the adopting family, I was assured in my heart that my child would have the future I wanted her to have. I love the family who adopted my daughter. They are so full of love for me and my daughter. They have a little boy who is four years old, and who immediately claimed the baby for his own. I never thought I would be in a situation to have to make this choice, but I found out that it was a loving, courageous, unselfish decision.
