Desirie had her life under control. She was a flight attendant based in the Bahamas and had 2 beautiful children. She had a great boyfriend. Things were going great. Then, Desirie found out she was pregnant. As soon as she told her boyfriend, he left her saying he was not ready for the responsibility of a baby and she needed to figure this out herself. Desirie had no one to turn to. She was able to work for a short time, until her doctor said she couldn’t fly and be on her feet.
Desirie had no family around to help her, and she had no idea what she should do. She prayed and meditated, and ended up calling Act of Love Adoption Agency in Utah. She told them her situation and they were happy to help her. After doing paperwork and talking to an adoption counselor, Desirie felt it would be best for her and her 2 children to relocate to Utah for the birth of the baby.
Desirie felt good about her decision to place and she chose a wonderful adoptive family. She met with them and they went to the doctor with her. The time came for Desirie to have her baby and she asked the adoptive mother to be in the delivery room. It was a sweet experience that bound the two of them together.
Desirie placed her baby girl into the loving arms of the adoptive family and filled her own arms with her two children. She was able to start to recover physically and emotionally and was ready to go home. She was able to go back to work as a flight attendant. Desirie and her children continue to stay in contact with the adoptive family.
