Lisa and Jared had 3 small children. They were both out of work and had to keep borrowing money from family members. Because of this, they were not on very good terms with many of their family members. Lisa found out she was pregnant again. Lisa and Jared had no idea how they would support another child.
They started exploring their options and contacted Act of Love Adoption Agency in Sandy, Utah. This worked great for Lisa and Jared because they lived in St. George, Utah. Lisa and Jared started working with their caseworker and counselor. They picked a wonderful adoptive family that also lived in Utah.
Lisa and Jared decided it would be best to drive to Sandy, Utah to have the baby. They wanted to be near the agency and close to the adoptive family. It was also better for them to have a little distance from their families.
Lisa, Jared and their children were staying in the adoption agency housing. They met several times with the adoptive family and were so happy with the bond they were creating.
Lisa went into labor. Everything went smoothly with the delivery. Lisa had even asked the adoptive mom to be in the delivery room with her.
Lisa and Jared signed all the legal documents and placed their baby girl in the arms of the adoptive family they had come to love. Lisa and Jared were able to both get jobs and create a stable situation for their children. They continue to keep in contact with the adoptive family through pictures and letters.
