Sara was about 7 month into her pregnancy when she knew she would not be able to care for her baby. The birth father walked out of her life as soon as he found out she was pregnant, and she had no family support. She was on her own. She already had 2 busy little boys, and had just been approved for state assistance in Maryland so she could work and go to school. She was trying to create a better life for herself and her children.
Sara reached out to several adoption agencies. She then contacted Act of Love Adoption Agency in Utah. Her call was answered right away and immediately put her mind at ease about adoption. Sara’s biggest concern was having an adoptive family picked out by the time she went into labor. Sara had been to a clinic for her initial pregnancy test, but had not been to a doctor. By this time, she was about 8 months along. She only had a month until her baby was due! The agency helped her with her paperwork, and most importantly, helped set up a doctor appointment.
Sara looked at profiles of adoptive families. One family stuck out to her, and she knew this would be the family for her baby. She talked to them on the phone and found that they were so excited to adopt. It made Sara excited to be part of the process. She felt connected to the family and felt emotionally ready to deliver.
Sara went to the doctor. Everything looked great, and he did confirm that she was due within a month. However, to Sara’s absolute surprise, she found out she was having twin boys!! She never imagined she would be having twins! This was very overwhelming to Sara, and she was so grateful that she had an adoption plan in place. She knew that she could not take care of two babies. Sara did a conference call with the adoptive family to tell them she was having twins. The family cried because they were so excited!
Shortly after the doctor appointment, Sara went into labor. The delivery and adoption placement were perfect. Sara met the adoptive family and absolutely loved them! She was so thankful that they were ready to love and care for her two sweet baby boys.
