LaShonda had 6 children that various family members were helping her raise. She was struggling to make ends meet and take care of her family. LaShonda very unexpectedly found out that she was pregnant again. She was completely overwhelmed at the thought of raising another child.
When LaShonda was about 6 months along, one of her friends suggested that she look into adoption. This friend had placed a baby for adoption 3 years prior, and had a wonderful experience. She gave LaShonda the phone number to Act of Love Adoption Agency in Utah.
LaShonda didn’t know what to expect when she picked up the phone to make the call. She was amazed that the people she was talking to were so kind. They sent the paperwork to her, and even followed up to make sure she didn’t have any questions.
LaShonda was anxious to choose a wonderful adoptive family for her baby boy. She finally found the perfect family that she was so pleased with. She chose to talk to them on the phone, and asked them to come to Georgia to be with her for the delivery of ‘their’ baby.
LaShonda also had the support of her doctor. He decided it would be best to induce LaShonda a week early. This allowed for the agency to arrange support for her and the adoptive family to be at the hospital for delivery.
LaShonda had a beautiful experience meeting the adoption agency staff and especially the adoptive family. She had a healthy baby boy that she placed into the arms of his adoptive family. LaShonda knew she had made the right decision for this little boy. She was so grateful her friend had a positive adoption experience and referred her to Act of Love Adoptions.
